Tobias Holzweiler is a photographer based out of Cologne, Germany. His work mainly focuses on documenting the mundanity of life and portraying people in a vulnerable and honest, yet aesthetic way.

Photography enables me to create a world people would understand and at the same time reveal a piece of my soul. Therefore, it’s always an expression of how I see the world and how I feel. It truly changed my entire life, because it changed the way I see and experience life. It taught me almost everything about life and myself, and most importantly to find beauty in the ordinary. Having a camera with me makes me feel independent and heard.“

“Growing up in a tiny village of 500 people, I’m interested especially in those things I didn’t get to see when I was young. Such as big cities, other cultures and languages. I get inspired by everyday life, from music, conversations, books. And of course from other photographers such as Joe Greer, André Wagner, Joel Meyerowitz and Sebastién Zanella.”
