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 telling visual stories, photojournalism. And photojournalism is about human interest, about people and the issues they call life. How they live their lives, how they deal with challenges. When ever, where ever they are. Real, Visual Storytelling.
