Dresden, Saxony, Germany
About Stefan Dietze
I am a 31 year old man from Leipzig, Germany who was born and grew up in Dresden. I studied media management and work full time as a radio producer. I took an interest in photography and the Urban Exploration movement in 2004 when I moved to Leipzig, which is a city very much defined by decay. I found endless opportunities to practise my skills in old GDR factories, obsolete power stations, schools and churches. Since then I made countless trips throughout Europe to find historic buildings that fascinated me. The most important thing for me as a photographer is to tell a story with my pictures. The places I try to find, which I have great respect for, have usually a century long history. I want people to look at them and to start wondering what once might have happened in the particular setting. Who could have lived in the old house? Worked and studied in the abandoned university? And what might have happened to them since?
I studied media management and got the knowledge of photography by myself over the years.
Everything I do in photography is figured out by myself.
