About Siegfried Hansen

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
