Stefan Falke was born and raised in Paderborn, Germany. After abandoning his civil engineer studies he worked as a photographer's assistant in Munich and later as a silk screen printer in Hamburg. He moved to New York in 1985. Back in Germany in 1994, film studios hired him as a set photographer for movies mostly filmed in Europe and Africa.
Besides working on assignments he started photographing a long-term project about a stilt walking school in the Caribbean titled "Moko Jumbies: The Dancing Spirits of Trinidad", which was exhibited at the international photo journalism festival Visa Pour L'Image in 2004 in Perpignan/France and published as a book in New York the same year (by: Pointed Leaf Press). Falke became a member of the prestigious German photo agency "laif / agentur fuer photos und reportagen" in 1999.
For his current long term project La Frontera he traveled along the entire 2000 miles long Mexican/US border and to date photographed 180 artists in order to show the vibrant cultural side of a region which is portrayed by the international media with the sole focus on violent crime.
Stefan Falke again lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, since 2002. Read Less
