tatjana (*1989) was born with a heart dedicated to music and an eye-trigger-finger-connection meant to press the shutter-release the very moment things happen. aged 15 and enlightened by the rolling stone magazine and its photographers she took her camera and started shooting bands on and off stage with the aim to document and tell the story of those chasing their dream on the road, passionately and determined.

"I want to empower, support and connect the right people within the music industry. The music industry is already rough enough to not foster real, sustainable connections and collaborations."
