Briefly about my person, my Name is Maximilian Rosenberger and I’m EVS-Volunteer at Fialta, i worked since 2008 as press- and event-photographer in Austria and love to capture portraits and landscapes, architecture and little details hidden in our daily world.

In my compassion for photography and the deep connection i feel with Belarus, i want to publish a photobook, which will show the culture, the daily life of the people in Minsk. As in Austria and so in other countries in the west, Belarus is still a “hidden treasure”, there are hardly any other sources than political news, the people and their country stay unknown so far. I wish to change this and show the people in their daily life, with their sadness and their happiness, their worries and dreams...



To do this, i need your help!

On our information meeting i would like to show you my vision of the project. When you decide to go on this journey with me, i’m looking forward to find moments of belarusian life with you. With this project we can contribute to the belarusian culture* and improve international relationships, thought showing its light and shadow, bring it closer to people outside Belarus, people who would like to know more of this strong and colorful but hidden culture*.

My idea is to show it through capturing daily life situations & body language of belarusians. And while we do this, we learn to work in a group, understand the psychology of movement, posing, gestures and mimics and discover our way of telling stories with photography and especially silhouettes.

*Here exactly lies the question, what is “culture”, is it theater, poetry and architecture or are those things just superficial symptoms of the very basic nature (culture) of the people living their lives?
