Reportage and movie stills photographer 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 where he photographed for German and Austrian magazines. Back in Hamburg in 1994, film production companies hired him as a set photographer. Besides his assignments he started a long-term photography project in 1996 about a stilt walking school in the Caribbean titled “Moko Jumbies: The Dancing Spirits of Trinidad”, which was exhibited at the Visa Pour L’Image 2004 in Perpignan/France and published as a book in New York the same year. He became a member of the German agency “laif / agentur fuer photos und reportagen” in 1999. He again lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, since 2002.
