Biography© Hermann Bredehorst
Stefan Boness is a photojournalist based in Berlin and Manchester.
He has received several awards for his work, including a World Press Photo award, and his work is being published by newspapers and magazines worldwide.
Stefan’s work has also been shown in exhibitions in Berlin, London, Nottingham, Tel Aviv and Asmara among other cities.
In addition to contemporary photojournalism, Stefan’s artistic work concentrates on long-term documentary projects that consider the reality of place in the context of past events and bring a consciously historical dimension to contemporary perspectives. He has published several of his projects as books.
Flanders Fields is a photographic meditation on the battlefields of World War I in the region around Ypres in Belgium. In Asmara – Africa's Jewel of Modernity Stefan shows the legacies of Italian colonial avant-garde architecture in the capital of Eritrea. In Japan Fleeting Encounters he captures the fleeting spirit of Japanese spring and creates the melancholic portrait of a modern country with deeply engrained attachment to ancient rituals.Tel Aviv - The White City looks at how the modernist principles of the Bauhaus architectural school have underpinned the construction of Tel Aviv as an Israeli city. His current project The Re-Making of Manchester focuses on how the tremendous changes - from the industrial revolution, the subsequent collapse of industry and the current regeneration efforts - have left their marks on the city.
