People & Places
Mirja Kofler is a freelance photographer based in Munich, Germany, working from everywhere.
She likes authenticity, minimalism and variety.
Born on the longest and brightest day of the year, the midwife looked at her hands, turned to her mom and said „she´ll be a piano player“. Then shortly paused and added „or a thief“. Mirja smiled and decided to press some camera buttons with those long fingers.
Co-founder of Classroom Concert and Sofar Sounds Munich.
Mirja has previously lived in London, Berlin and France and worked as photolab assistant for Jürgen Schadeberg, assistant studio manager at Studio C2 in Munich and freelance picture editor for MADAME.
