About Rainer Steussloff

Rainer F. Steußloff has been taking photographs since he was 6 years old. As a child he roamed the landscape along the Ems river, later commissioned by major German and international magazines to do so in Asia and Europe. In the 1990s he travelled extensively in the crisis regions between Kurdistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Cambodia and North Korea. The pictures taken there were published in magazines such as Der Spiegel, Stern, Die Zeit, NewYorkTimes and Newsweek. In recent years he has concentrated on longer-term, more complex topics. These led him to India, Ethiopia, Morocco, Israel, Jordan and Turkey. His works have been shown in various exhibitions and honoured with international prizes.
