Christoph Stepan

makes large-scale, colour photographs which are distinctive for their clean and contrasting look on architecture. More recent works focus on urban photography and contemporary life.


Born in Munich, Germany, he moved to Switzerland in 1995, where he finished high school. He then studied economics at the University of St.Gallen. While photography was always part of his life it became his profession only after having graduated from university in 2004. Following a strong interest in architecture and his introduction to analog photography and larger formats, he became the assistant to James Turrell’s official photographer, Florian Holzherr in 2006. Besides commissioned work for some of Europe’s leading architects, Christoph started to work on personal projects, initially focusing on architecture and spatial relations in the urban environment. In addition he has been working as an assistant to Robert Polidori on projects in Brazil, India and Central Europe from 2010 to 2012.


He currently lives in Munich.
