On today’s episode, Ute speaks with Christiane Slawik, one of the most famous equestrian photographers in Germany. Christiane has travelled all over the world to photograph horses and she is one of the few who can live from her work. Her photos appear in many different horse books, magazines and calendars internationally. In 2019 she published her latest book “A World Full of Horses” describing her travels and of course featuring many of her best photos. Today we talk about the first two chapters of her book set in New Zealand and Christiane tells us all the interesting stories behind her photos and shares her favourite travel locations. She also talks about her adventures such as meeting wild horses or adopting an injured penguin. A must-listen if New Zealand is on your bucket list!
