Born:  Leipzig. Germany,1955

Europe’s pre-eminent photographic artist who specializes in large-format colour photographs of expansive settings, some natural, but mostly man-made. Studied in Essen and Dusseldorf in Germany in the mid- 1980s. At the end of the decade his work first came to public and critical attention.

He was also a key player in a European movement that wanted photographs to be framed and presented in art galleries and to be regarded as works of art. Has been exhibited all over Europe and North America and in 1998 was awarded the Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize.
