About myself

I would like to welcome you to my photoblog and introduce myself. My name is Tore Christianson and I am a photographer based in Munich, Germany. On squaremunich I will blog photos from different places in Munich in order to show non residents, as well as residents interesting places. You will see photos of sights like Marienplatz, Frauenkirche, Odeonsplatz, Olympic Park, BMW World or get in touch with the Bavarian lifestyle with photos of Lederhosen (Traditional Costumes), beer, Isar, Wiesn, the English Garden and many more. I hope you enjoy my blog squaremunich and its photos.

If you have questions about squaremunich, my photos or Munich, it would be great if you got in touch with me. You can find me on Google+ under my name „Tore Christianson“.

About squaremunich:

I will explain my project called squaremunich. First of all, there is no particular reason I have started shooting these photos. But since I am based in Munich I have lot of opportunity to explore the city and its highlights. With my camera by my side I shoot photos of famous places like Marienplatz, Allianz Arena, Frauenkirche, Alter Peter, Wiesn, Isar, Olympiapark, BMW World etc. Moreover I shoot photos to show the Munich way of life, in particular this special familiar feeling you only find in Munich. The unique mixture of beer, Isar, chestnut trees, the English Garden and of course Lederhosen. Nevertheless, Munich is a big and busy city which still feels like an old-fashioned village. As you can see, squaremunich is not an arty constructed project but more of a affair of the heart. Maybe you like the photos, Munich and my photoblog.

All the photos have been resized and saved as squares, and I've done very little photo editing. During the process of resizing I have sharpend the images a little bit. That's it.
