Stefan Falke

Stefan Falke was born in Paderborn, Germany, in 1956. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, and photographs stories and portraits for international magazines and shoots movie stills for film studios. His last long term project ‘MOKO JUMBIES: The dancing Spirits of Trinidad’ resulted in a book of the same title. His current and ongoing long term project is titled LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US Mexican Border. He has to date visited and photographed 180 artists along the entire length of border. The photo book La Frontera was just published in Germany and Falke is currently searching for an American publisher for this project.

Falke joined the prestigious German photo agency ‘laif’ in 1999.

With this long term project I document cultural activities in what used to be some of the worlds most dangerous cities along the US/Mexican border. Since 2008 I photographed 180 artists along the entire 2000 miles long divide to show the vibrant cultural side of a region that is usually portrayed by the international media with the sole focus on violent crime.
