The key to one's own expression and style lies not in the handling of the camera, but in the photographer's ability to empathize with shooting situations and to move appropriately within them. This empathy allows access to the portrayed people. And one's own awareness of how to appear and be perceived makes one become part of the scene that one photographs. From working at close range and with patience and time, expressive and moving pictures emerge like those captured by photographer Steffen Rothammel on his travels.

With this book Steffen Rothammel helps all photographers with prior knowledge to work on their own photographic expression and style. He shows them how, thanks to their preparation, they photograph more consciously, how to train and use their intuition, and how to train their empathy, self-perception, patience and perseverance. They learn how to move in the everyday life of the local people without leaving any traces, how they find moments for captivating pictures and tell the stories of the people with them.
