Photography is the window to an
intriguing world frozen in time to help
us discover and understand the
diversity of life and its humankind.
“It is not about what you see but rather
about how you see it”.

hristian Ghammachi, a
lawyer by profession, and
photographer by passion,
eternalizes moments with his
camera, which he likes to think of
as his own time and space and time
machine, his key to a world he
hopes to never leave.
Christian makes it a point to travel
as often as he can and learn about
different places and cultures.
“Traveling has allowed me to
discover how rich and diversified
our world is, be it in people and
cultures, history, natural beauty
and human creations; traveling
truly humbles you” he says.

As a lawyer, Christian has worked
extensively with Governments and
UN organizations, in relation with
environmental and humanitarian
damages resulting from conflicts.
As a photographer, he puts us in
touch with our world as he see it,
through his eyes. With one shot, of
a moving and powerful eye contact,
a breathtaking landscape,
Christian goes on exploring
the world and capturing every
essence of emotion and culture
he stumbles upon.
It all started in 1991, when, at the
age of 18, he borrowed his father’s
manual camera, awakening an
immediate passion for photography.
From nude photography to human
rights, life and nature, he portrays
the beauty that each element
around him has to offer, and should
retain. “My perception of beauty
does not lay in how graphic a photo
will be, but more often than not in
what it implies, hints and the story it
tells,” Says Christian, “I believe in
the power of photography because
it moves you and teaches you. A
photo can document a moment in
its true form and reality, help the
viewer see deeper into things…”
