Mongolia – the land of Genghis Khan and nomads. In addition to tradition and simplicity, members of the upper class in Ulan Bator enjoy a luxurious life-style – though they are not at ease in front of the camera.
Born in Eckernförde in 1977, Zellner studied cinematography in Munich. In 2012, his first film “Der Preis des Goldes” was released in cinemas. It also deals with the situation in Mongolia today. In addition to film commitments, Zellner is giving increasing time to documentary photography: the reportage from Ulan Bator was taken with a Leica M and M9 and with a Summicron-M 35 mm f/2 Asph lens.
