Raffael Waldner

Raffael Waldner (born 1972 in Basel, lives and works in Zurich) is a professional photographer whose work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions worldwide. He was part of the “Regeneration 50 Photographers of Tomorrow” project and has been developing an extensive and complex body of work called Car Crash Studies for ten years. Fascinated by photography located at the crossroads of the artistic and documentary genres, Raffael Waldner aims to depict the ambiguity of everyday live. Whether in his series on industrial landscapes or his series on cars he observes everyday locations and everyday objects that have lost their original function.
