Visual Q&A: Christoph Grill


Christoph Grill’s deep passion of documenting the former Eastern Europe and Balkan socialist states, as well as the successor states of the former Soviet Union, has produced an impressive body of work spanning several decades.  

We asked Christoph ten questions, but with a catch: he could only reply to them with his images. This visual interview exposes not only some breathtaking images, but also some deep insights into the photographer behind them:
