Siegfried Hansen traces visual compositions from graphics and colours and creates „Street Photography“ which main points are not humans and faces, but graphic connections and formal relations. It shows the aesthetics of the coincidence in a public area, which is full of surprises.
He is one of 45 famous street photographers from around the world, profiled in the book „Street Photography Now“by Thames and Hudson.
Since April 2014 member of the worldwide famous photographer-collective iN-PUBLiC.
Almost since 3 years, the seriesSurfaces in the Street is under the 100 „all time most viewed series“ at LensCulture.
2015 Kettler Verlag published my first book : Hold The Line / Siegfried Hansen.
I am very pleased that my photograph, alongside those of Trent Parke, Alex Webb, Harry Gruyaert, Jacob Aue Sobol, Bruce Gilden and Ernst Haas for example, have been chosen to be in this wonderful book from Michael Freeman .
