Wolfgang Strassl was born in Munich in 1956, where he still lives. Having spent almost a decade in Tel Aviv, London has become his second home recently. As a photographer, he is interested in social systems and spaces, in particular in the environments in which social trans- and interactions take place. He understands his practice as a reflection on the characteristics and conditions of human existence in the 21st century. His work has been subject of many international exhibitions, and he has published numerous books, most recently the photographic study Homeland – East Jerusalem Landscapes (Kerber, 2016).
