Early life

Watzlawick was born in Verden (Aller), Germany.[2]


Watzlawick began his career with taking photographs in the fashion and beauty industry before he started making commercial advertising films for known brands like Land Rover.[3] At the same time his style has shifted away from fashion towards the sense of natural beauty. His work is mainly influenced by the realist aesthetic of photographers such as Peter Lindbergh and Henrik Purienne.

He made his own films since childhood. At that time with the video camera of his father Volker Watzlawick. And so, little by little, he began to write scripts, short stories and thoughts and put them Negative (photography)|on film. Which laid the foundation for his work today.[4]

His subjects are predominantly natural looking girls often set in nature, under the bright shining sun, near the ocean. Confident in their own bodies.
