Stefan Falke was born and raised in Paderborn, Germany. After abandoning his civil engineer studies he worked as a photographer's assistant in Munich and later as a silk screen printer in Hamburg. He moved to New York in 1985 where he photographed for German and Austrian magazines. Back in Germany in 1994, film production studios hired him as a set photographer for movies mostly filmed in Europe and Africa.
Besides working on assignments he started a long-term photography project about a stilt walking school in the Caribbean titled "Moko Jumbies: The Dancing Spirits of Trinidad", which was exhibited at the international photo journalism festival Visa Pour L'Image in 2004 in Perpignan/France and published as a book in New York the same year. Falke became a member of the prestigious German photo agency "laif / agentur fuer photos und reportagen" in 1999.
For his current long term project La Frontera he is planning to travel (in sections) along the Mexican/US border to photograph artists and other creative people in order to show the cultural side of a region which is portrayed by the international media with the sole focus on violence.He already started his project in Tijuana will have an exhibition there of his work in March 2012.
Stefan Falke again lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, since 2002.
