Norman Behrendt

Born in 1981, East Berlin, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Norman Behrendt became first known for his photographs of Berlin’s graffiti scene and his award winning photobook Burning down the house, 2007-2012 (Seltmann & Söhne). This project was shown in solo exhibitions in Belgium and Germany as well as group shows and festivals in Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Lithuania, and Ireland. His photographic work that mainly circulates on the boundaries between documentary and conceptual photography deals with the individual, cultural and political significance of places and people defining them.
