MICHAEL GEGENFURTNER mail@michaelgegenfurtner.de


Dear visitors,

thank you very much for viewing my webside. First of all I want to introduce myself with a few words.

My name is Michael Gegenfurtner and I was born in Germany on the 4th of February in 1991. I am currently studying Communications design at the 'Hochschule fuer angewandte Wissenschaften Wuerzburg-Schweinfurt' in Wuerzburg, Germany. Alongside with
my courses I was able to study one semester at the 'Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University' in Istanbul, Turkey, and to intern for the
'One Megagroup Inc.' and 'Ideya Media' as a layout artist in
Manila, Philippines.

I came into the field of the arts in 2010 during a one year stay in the Philippines. Back then, I have met photographers who used pictures as a way of exposing social issues to the public. This inspired me a lot and made me try it on my own. Since then, I grew a passion for the visual arts, especially for photography and graphic design.
