Stunning Works of Colorblind Photographer Kilian Schonberger

Kilian Schonberger is a young colorblind photographer from Germany. Instead of focusing on colors, which he has a hard time distinguishing between, he focuses on all the other principles of design : balance, contrast and emphasis.

‘My aspiration was always to cut my path as a photographer with an own creative perspective – despite being colourblind. I recognized that I could turn this so-called disadvantage into a strength, too and developed my own unique photographic view: E.g. while getting a picture of a chaotic forest scene, I can’t clearly distinguish the different green and brown tones. Brushing aside this “handicap” I don’t care about those tones and just concentrate on the patterns of the wood to achieve an impressive image structure.’
