About Me

Kristian Bertel initially worked as a graphic designer before turning to photography. His decisive moment came in 2006, when he discovered portrait photography and began shooting people.
He is mostly known for his series of Indian images, which started as a long-term project on India in 2008.
He started out by taking humanitarian-based images of the Indian people and their life conditions. He turned his attention to documentary photography and his work is published on Kristian Bertel | Photography, which contains 12 galleries that describe common life in India. At around this period he came to the attention of poverty in the Indian cities and he began to document child beggars. He shot a seminal essay on India’s street children called ‘Child Beggars of New Delhi’, an essay, where his pictures became more photojournalistic motivated. Since then, Kristian Bertel has ventured to South America.
Kristian Bertel now works as a freelance photographer and he has received recognition for his work from members in numerous photo communities. He is the founder of B e h i n d T h e L e n s : Photoblog.
