In Focus


Bernd studied communications design, majoring in photography at FH Darmstadt. After assisting various still life, fashion and architecture photographers, he then proceeded to work as an art director at various advertising agencies in Hamburg. Yet today, since 2003, Bernd is working exclusively as a photographer. As a logical consequence of his past, his minimalistic vision leans strongly towards graphic experimentation with inspirations often rooted in painting and film.
Bernd Westphal is currently based in Hamburg.
