“I’m not a formalist; I don’t know what it is to ‘make’ a picture. For me at least, photography really is catching the shot - like catching a bird in flight, or game on a hunt. Accidental energy makes the shot, the creative intersection of intuition, planning and coincidence.”
Christian Kallen’s interest in photography dates from the same time he got his passport. First using a Pentax MX, then a Canon Elan II, he traveled to 17 countries with Sobek Expeditions, Adventure Travel magazine, Sierra Club Books and other publications. For the last 10 years his work has been almost exclusively digital, for innovative travel-oriented websites such as TerraQuest, Mungo Park, Quokka Sports, MSNBC and MSN.
