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 Stier continues his work for 10 Magazine, shooting two accessories stories for the publication. Combining luxury items with bold and bright sets amassed from the world of throwaway consumables, Daniel is able to create a sense of tension in his work.
Daniel Stier recently worked with on GWW Design on a campaign pitch for Art Director’s Club Germany on the theme of mend and make do.
We’re pleased to announce the release of Daniel Stier latest book, ‘A Tale of One City’. Daniel describes the project as “A 21st Century picture book about the clashing of opposites, the simultaneity of extreme wealth and poverty, excess and deprivation that characterises one major city, but might just be a tale of them all”.
