Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

Klaus Pichler is an Austrian photographer born in 1977, in Vienna, but grown up in Judenburg, Austria. After graduating from the University of Life Sciences in 2005 he decided to follow his heart and quit his profession as a landscape architect to become a full time photographer. He is since then creating free photo projects which were widely published, exhibited internationally and partially published as books. The topics of his work are the hidden aspects of everyday life in its varying forms, as well as social groups with their own codes and rules.

In his projects he looks at the world as a huge theatrical stage crowded with peculiar and awkward individuals. His distinctive style is seen in this project called “Middle Class Utopia” that portraits the strange world of the garden colonies and their inhabitants – daily and nightly, throughout a whole year.

Artist books include Fürs Leben gezeichnet, Fotohof edition, Salzburg, 2011, Skeletons in the closet, self-published, Vienna, 2013, One Third, Anzenberger Edition, Vienna, 2013, Just the two of us, self-published, Vienna, 2014, Dust, Anzenberger Edition, Vienna, 2015.

Pichler’s work has been exhibited worldwide, including Rome, Hong Kong, Oslo, Paris and New Delhi, among others. He is represented by Anzenberger Gallery from Vienna, Austria  and ROCKELMANN-& from Berlin, Germany.

He lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
