Some 25 years ago Nick Jaussi saw the light of the day and in early life he used several cameras in an extensive way. The results were mostly not outstanding but having fun was most important. After civil service he traveled a long journy through Latin Amerika with his first reflex camera. With a lot of new impressions he started to think about how to make pictures. Other travellers helped him to learn the technical part of the camera. He had his first publications for local Nongovermental Organisations. Back in Germany he started studying social and cultural anthropology and communications in Berlin. Apart from his studies he never forgot his pasion to tell stories through personal fotos. He engaged in Youth Press Berlin and revitalised the photography section to organise a lot of events regarding his passion.
