'Fruit Vendors' - CHRISTOPH SIEGERT documents in his lifestyle reportage the behavior of fruit vendors in Kenya

“On a lonely country road in the middle of Kenya, there is a spot where all the fruit vendors gather to offer their goods. Every car that stops there is "bombarded" from all sides like from a swarm of bees. Each saleswoman tries to convince passengers of the cars of their goods and the passengers try to make the best deal without being ripped off. After a few minutes, when the sale is done, the nightmare is over and you drive on...”

This intense moment in which emotions collide, and there is tremendous tension in the air is CHRISTOPH SIEGERTS 'decisive moment'. The four motifs were created within a few minutes and show a microcosm that visualizes the will to survive of an entire continent. The motifs symbolize that moment in life when success or failure is decided. In this photographic position, the look of staged lifestyle photographs is amalgamated with classic reportage in order to photograph this decisive moment photographically.
