Stefan Haehnel is a freelance photographer. He lives in Berlin and works wherever the viewfinder of his camera leads him.
After teaching himself photo basics at an early age, Haehnel studied print and media technology, before completing a second degree at the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in Berlin. He continues to develop the visual language that he acquired there. His photographic practice is characterized by his documentarian’s eye. In his pictures the light is striking, shadows emphasize moods, landscapes become protagonists, and portraits are face-to-face encounters.
