About Guido Koppes: “A Photograph doesn’t perse needs to be beautiful. It needs to tell a story!” Quote from an interview with Sharon Willems at Happix. For me photography equals photojournalism, and photojournalism is about people and their stories, eventually. How they live their lives, how they deal with challenges of life. When ever, where ever they are. Real, Visual Storytelling.
