Sandra Köstler is a documentary photographer who explores man-made environments. Her work is rooted in the intense immersion in a place while tracing its political, social and emotional dimensions that shape our experience. Most of her projects deal with the continuous transformation of cities and landscapes.
Sandra received a PhD in sociology from Bielefeld University, had dropped out of science afterwards, but still has a strong interest in urban and media theory which often influences her photographic practice. She also works as a writer and teaches workshops about documentary photography.
Currently, Sandra is based in Mannheim, Germany.
