About

Hannes Wiedemann is a Berlin-based photographer. He graduated from Ostkreuz School of Photography, where he received four years of professional training and mentorship by Sibylle Fendt, Werner Mahler and Thomas Sandberg. He works as a freelance photographer and is available for assignments.

Using the conceptual framework of the ‘technosphere’ as a foundation, his conceptual work explores human physicality in the anthropocene. While Grinders (2016) documents the DIY cyborg community in the United States, his project Bits and Pieces (2017) is a visceral odyssey through contemporary Seoul, the nicknamed ‘world capital of plastic surgery’. 

Grinders (self-published, Berlin 2016) was awarded third prize of Kassel Dummy Award 2017 and selected BJP Breakthrough Award 2017 runner-up. 
Bits and Pieces was shortlisted for La Fábrica / Photo London Dummy Award 2018.
