About

Malte Jäger is a Berlin, Germany based professional photographer.
In his work, he is mainly searching for human nature. What drives people to live their lives the way they do? That’s what Jäger tries to find discover, understand, and share with others. He uses the photographic medium to look behind curtains which wouldn’t be opened for him if he wasn’t using his camera. Befitting his inquisitive nature, Jäger loves to meet and learn about people. His images reflect this interest – lively, active, vibrant photos of humans and humanity, and the joy of life.
