Alexander Rauch



My name is Alexander Rauch, I am an amateur photographer and totally addicted to macro-photography. I just love to get lost in the details. It is fascinating how many great treasures lie directly in front of us, hidden from the human eye. I am studying Biology and Philosophy/Psychology in Graz to become a high school teacher.
