Benjamin Pfau is a German photographer. He was born in Bielefeld in 1990. As a twenty-year old he moved to Berlin for a basketball coaching position with Alba Berlin. He quit basketball in 2014 and spent the following year writing poetry. While working on the set of a dffb student film, he took a photo of actress Romina Kueper jumping into a pool and decided to concentrate on photography from that point on. He is currently working on a photo diary centered around his life in Bangkok, Thailand. He lives and works in Berlin and Bangkok.
In places of familiarity we might experience dissonance at times, but in places we are unfamiliar with, dissonance is the rule.
Dreams are dissonant, fantasies are not. The stories we tell each other are dissonant, the stories we tell ourselves are not.
The photography that excites me is a blur, it is vague, it leaves a trail, but it is ultimately aimless, it is a house of cards that already collapsed.
