Ruth Stoltenberg (*1962) received her photographic training at the Neue Schule für Fotografie in Berlin as well as at the Lichtblick School in Cologne, after previously working as a television editor. She quickly developed her own artistic signature and successfully completed numerous long-term projects. The artist’s work primarily focuses on, and sees her intensively engaging with, places that have been shaped, abandoned or left in a state
of upheaval by history. Her works can be found in a number of prominent collections and have been exhibited, recognised and published nationally as well as internationally.
Since 2019 Ruth Stoltenberg is Vice President of the German Academy of Photographie (Deutsche Fotografische Akademie)
