Photographer - Photojournalist
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
German-born, award-winning documentary photographer and visual story-teller, Peter Bauza, is committed to capturing images that are not only beautiful, but also inspire the viewer to reflect more deeply on the subject matter. Peter is member of the agency Echo Photojournalism.
Bauza's stories most often address contemporary social and political issues. Whether working in black & white or in color, his images document how local communities are dealing with oftentimes severe environmental and economic challenges.
Bauza brings a unique background to his photographic passion. After completing studies in International Commerce he moved to several countries as manager. Formal studies in photography helped to launch himself as a photojournalist and photographer. Culturally and literate and fluent in five languages (German, French, Spanish, English and Portuguese) Bauza moves easily within many countries to capture the stories that need to be told. He works on photojournalistic and editorial assignments around the world, in addition to projects of his own.
