Ruth Stoltenberg, born in 1962, received her photographic education at the New School for Photography in Berlin and the LichtblickSchool in Cologne. She has been working on different long-term projects, most of them describing historical and cultural locations with a very personal photographic view. Her work has been shown in various exhibitions and published in catalogues and books. For her work about the Stasi Prison and Jail Hospital in Berlin, published by Kehrer Verlag in 2015, she got a big support by "Stiftung Kunstfonds", one of the most important foundations for art in Germany. Her new project "Schengen" about the border triangle Luxembourg-France-Germany has been awarded with national and international prizes and will be published in spring 2018.
Ruth Stoltenberg is member of the German Academy of Photographie (Deutsche Fotografische Akademie)
