Sven Marquardt grew up in East Berlin. He started his training as a photographer and cameraman at the DEFA studios. After his first publications in the magazines Sonntag and Das Magazin from 1985-1986, he was the assistant of Rudolf Schäfer. He worked as a fashion photographer until the late 1980s for Sibylle together with Roger Melis and Arno Fischer and became known for documenting the subculture of the GDR. After the reunification of Germany he stopped photographing for a period and worked as a bouncer at the Berlin club Berghain where he soon became a symbol of the club culture. He has had several exhibitions and continues to photograph today. – Corners bumped, two stronger creases in upper portion, otherwise in good condition.
