Water. Clear. Cool. Bright. Moving. This is how the artist Sven Hoffmann saw it and captured it in the photo. At the Dead Sea, between Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian West Bank. Water has taken his fancy. Hoffmann has been travelling around the world for decades, photographing the wet element in all its beauty. Always different. Always new. “Aqua Gobalis”. Water worldwide.
Born in 1965 in Koblenz, Sven Hoffmann studied sports at the Free University of Berlin from 1985 to 1989, and from 1986 to 1992 also photography at the Hochschule der Künste. He then lectured at universities in Berlin, Nuremberg and Finland. Already during his studies Hoffmann concentrated on the subject of water. Starting from the depiction of the element, he expanded his artistic exploration to ecological, economic, and social aspects and initiated the Aqua Globalis project in 2012. Sven Hoffmann lives and works in Berlin.
