ABOUT JOHANNES

Photography helps me to make sense of the world around me and my place in it, and sometimes just to make sense of myself

Johannes Reinhart

Hi, I’m Johannes Reinhart, a Western Australian fine art photographer and educator.


It’s hard to sum up something as complex as my photography in one sentence. I take photos because it gives me a voice and I can express myself with photography much better than with words.

I also like real a lot, real people and real moments …and then there’s of course the hunting, which keeps on attracting me to documentary and street photography where you never know what scene you will stumble upon next. 

Some of the themes that find themselves in my work are life, death, identity, loneliness, resilience, shadow and light and two sides of the same. I shoot from the heart and try  to look deeper. This way I can find patterns that help me to connect some of the dots of this puzzle we call life.  

Yeah, and I did alright with awards and had a few exhibitions.
