Raphael Helmut Schmitt

Raphael Helmut Schmitt *1998 is a photographer and digital artist based in Berlin. Educated at the Faculty of Art and Design in Bielefeld, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, in 2021. He works on his own projects and in the field of postproduction as digital-artist.

In his surreal pictorial worlds, he often deals with dreams, longings, and absurdities of life, tracing the ongoing existence. In the process, fashion and portrait photography enable him to capture emotions as they pass by. Often, he reveals the magical moments that can be discovered behind facades.
