Portrait

Mitja Rietbrock works as a reporter and cameraman in Switzerland. He has been honoured with several journalist awards for his work. He was born in Munich in 1971 and is father of two daughters. He lives with his family in Zurich. Whether travelling as a jounalist, or privately, he has visited more than 110 countries.

Always at his side : several cameras, enabling him to record photographically the people he meets, especially children. Through his numerous missions and travels around the globe, he has come to understand that children are the most vulnerable members of our society and often have to endure a world they haven’t created themselves.

The project It’s OUR world ! aims to raise awareness of the living conditions of disadvantaged children. The pictures shown here have already been exhibited around the world, and are available for purchase. All proceeds will be donated to various Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) trying, through their projects, to improve the living conditions of disadvantaged children. On the spot, Mitja Rietbrock makes sure the donations reach their designated projects.
