Sebastian Haenel’s work is exciting and vibrant without being overly glossy or detached. His interest in humanity and its varied conditions lends itself to a thorough portrait of his subject – whether individual or in large groups, in studio or in environments, his images speak to the viewer. Strongly influenced by his upbringing in a middle-class family in Hamburg, Sebastian was fed a steady diet of art, classical music, movies, books, social matters, and politic. To this day, he takes an interest in cultural and social discourse with his photography. With time spent in Germany, England, and Eastern Europe, Sebastian has lived, studied, and traveled around the world. His global perspective is sought after by clients of all stripes, from large corporate clients and agencies, to non-profit cultural concerns, and editorials. He is currently based in Berlin.
