A graduate of the fine arts school of Zurich after studying literature and philosophy, Andreas Seibert lives and works in Tokyo since 1997. Independent photojournalist for numerous international magazines, he devotes much of his personal approach to the changes in society. Working on multiple projects, he documents the internal migration in China since 2002.


FROM SOMEWHERE TO NOWHERE

China witnesses the largest migration in human history with 150 million villagers that have left rural areas for cities. The recent economic crisis returned more than 20 million migrants in their country after losing their jobs. In his series "From Somewhere to Nowhere," Andreas Seibert is interested in following these workers in the new cities as well as observing their returns, often disenchanted, in the provinces.

This impressive documentary has been the subject of a book 2published by Lars Müller in 2008, of a documentary directed by Villi Hermann presented at the last Locarno Film Festival, and of various exhibitions in eastern Switzerland and Europe .

In 2009, Andreas Seibert participated to the 7th International Photography Award, organized by the Festival Images.
