About Stefan Falke:
Photographer Stefan Falke was born in Paderborn, Germany. After abandoning his civil engineering 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 the mid 80s for a while where he photographed for German and Austrian magazines. German film studios hired him as a set photographer for movies filmed in Europe and Africa after his return to Hamburg. He credits his time working on movie sets with “my most important time for becoming a working photographer." He moved back to New York in 2002 where he now lives with his wife Christine. Besides working on his assignments he passionately follows his long-term projects like "MOKO JUMBIES: The Dancing Spirits of Trinidad,” "LA FRONTERA: Artists along the U.S. – Mexican Border," and, more recently, "Keep Going New York !!", about the streets of New York and its resilient people during the pandemic in 2020. Falke is a member of the photo agency laif - Agentur für Photos & Reportagen - since 1999.
