About Joseph Eta

Growing up on the coast of the Atlantic ocean and close to the equatorial rain forest instilled in me a fascination for the natural world which has never diminished as I have grown older.

As a child, my grandma taught me to tell the time by tracking the position of shadows created by the sun. On most days after school, I and my friends would wonder into the nearby forest and pick ripe fruits from trees. At other times we would play football on the beach and go for a swim afterwards.

These early interactions with the outside world was the beginning of my appreciation of the beauty, vastness and complexity of nature and our place in it as humans.

Going to industrial Germany and studying Software Engineering illuminated both the extraordinary power of technology and its limitations as well. I am beholding and inspired by different ways we live and communicate in diverse environments. My photography is an expression of this diversity that I observe and live. I do not seek to impose my view of the world into my photographs but rather just capture the world as is.
