Oliver Schneider is a photographer, freelance Art-Director and co-editor of Actual Colors May Vary and is based in Berlin, Germany.

It’s sprouting color, form, light and shadow. A little emotion machine. But my hand and my head are needed to start. In my subconsciousness, I press strange buttons, choose modes and spin wheels. The camera is the extension of my mind, my brain, my experience and my eyes, I’m immersing myself in technology but I’m thinking about emotions and time. Maybe I will never see this place again.
