Under the Radar: Christoph Schaller

With a fascination for the fragile freedom and unconventional beauty of the youth, young German photographer Christoph Schaller has been noted for his personal and poetic imagery. Dividing his time between Munich and London, his work is regularly featured in in magazines, online platforms, music videos, and fashion films. We put him under the radar.

Would like to meet…
– I’d love to meet Christopher Bailey, CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Burberry. I’m a big fan of his vision, and what he and Angela Ahrendts did to the brand. He seems to be having a great energy.

Most memorable night out…
– I’ve certainly had a few… however, one of the most memorable ones probably happened during Paris Fashion Week last year when I went out with my buddy Marc. We went to the after show party of Mugler and bumped into Azealia Banks and a couple of other really amazing people. The room was full of energy and talent. It was crazy and so inspiring.

Guilty pleasure…
– I’m not entirely sure what you mean by that, but to be honest I can’t really relate to the subject. I’m quite a disciplined person. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and I don’t really have any “guilty pleasures”.

Wouldn’t recommend…
– I wouldn’t recommend trying to go to London Heathrow at four in the morning by train only to find out your credit card isn’t working at the ticket counter, then jumping over the bars at the subway – with your suitcase – and almost missing your flight. Yes, that happened to me.

Before I die…
– I want to direct a movie that makes it to the cinema.

Hidden talent…
– I don’t know… I try not to hide them. Maybe I should ask someone else if something comes to their mind.

Just discovered…
– The British band Swim Deep. Loving their sound and their videos! Great band!

Dances to…
– A lot of different music. I’m quite open in that sense and love listening, and dancing, to different kind of artists and bands.

Laughs at…
– Ari in Entourage.

What I’m wearing…
– Black Acne jeans, white Acne t-shirt, and Converse.

Most visited website…
– Probably Facebook. But I also love scrolling through Nowness
and Freunde von Freunden

Most viewed YouTube video…
– I don’t really watch a lot of funny videos on YouTube, but mostly music videos. Lately I’ve been watching this one a lot: Arctic Monkeys – Why’d you only call me when you’re high?
