About

Peter Nitsch’s background is located back in the late eighties of the German Skater scene. He studied communication design in Munich, to later graduate as designer from the University of Munich, department of design (specializing in motion design). As on air designer he worked for clients such as Universal Studios, ProSieben, 13th Street, SciFi Channel and United Nations. After that period of time, he returned to concentrate to work on corporate design and photography.

Nitsch has also been a contributor to The SIP (Shpilman Institute for Photography), a research institute that aspires to open debate creative work in the field of photography. Nitsch has won several international awards both as designer (New York Festival, BDA…) and photographer (Los Angeles International Photography Award, Hasselblad Masters semifinalist…). He is co-founder of the ‘Playboard Magazine‘, ‘RUPA‘ and the former culture blog ‘get addicted to…‘.

Far from the traffic jams and the go-go bars, Nitsch takes us into the front rooms of the eight million ordinary Thais who are the real Bangkok: busy, chaotic-looking, organised by an impenetrable idiosyncrasyand unashamedly human.
