Götz Diergarten

Born in 1972, Götz Diergarten studied photography at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he developed his typological and rigorous approach under the tutelage of Bernd and Hilla Becher.

Götz Diergarten documents vernacular architecture throughout Europe, including storefront facades, beach cabanas, spas and metro stations in Germany, France, England and Belgium. His keen sense of color and texture add a dimension of play and whimsy to an otherwise austere conception, recalling the deadpan beauty of such American photographers as William Eggleston and Stephen Shore.

Now Götz Diergarten is living and working in Frankfurt a.M. and Volxheim in Germany.
