German-born Christoph Gielen specializes in video and photographic aerial studies of urban development in relation to land use and preservation, exploring the intersection of art and environmental politics. He is the author of Ciphers(Jovis Verlag, 2013), nominated for the Deutscher Fotobuchpreis. Gielen’s primary use of photography is to engage the general public to become actively involved in the discourse on environmental sustainability and social equity. 

Shifting his focus to a more local practice of conservation, Gielen is now engaged with foundational soil health and fostering diversity of plant and animal species.
