Daniel Stier is a photographer and director originally from Germany, but now based in London. Working across photography genres, he creates rigorous studio environments imbuing his work with a scientific, almost clinical feeling. He constantly plays with this scientific approach to lead the viewer through an ambiguous journey of ‘truths’ and ‘mistruths’. The almost detached lens through which Daniel views his subject (whether people or object) creates a unique and inimitable folio of work where discovery is paramount to the viewer.
Daniel has published a book ‘Ways of Knowing’ and has had his work featured in Wallpaper*, It’s Nice That, The Telegraph, Der Grief, The New York Times and Spiegel to name but a few.
Recent clients include Barclays, Volkswagen, Skoda, SONY, Orange, Norwegian, Virgin Media, Harvey Nichols and Budweiser.
Daniel was recently commissioned by Mosaic (the Wellcome Collection magazine) to shoot a new editorial story. Shot around the the theme of meat allergies and the recent spike in diagnoses, Daniel created a series of stomach-curdling imagery for the magazine.
Daniel Stier was commissioned by Zeit Magazin in Germany to shoot their cover story on cakes and pies for their latest edition.
