Steffi Klenz is a female person.

Steffi Klenz is a German artist, living in London, best known for her large-scale photographic works of unusual urban spaces. Her photographic practice is fundamentally concerned with challenging conventional conceptions of architecture. She examines the peripheral spaces of modern culture as a location for transition and transformation – geographically and metaphorically. Her work unfolds in urban places and buildings, but it is not architectural photography but rather uncovers unexpected narratives and traces of history. As an artist using the medium of photography, her work has been developing a quest for the possibilities of representation, encouring the debate how photographs are produced, placed and rethought in a context that is interwoven across disciplines.

Klenz completed her MA in photography at the Royal College of Art in 2005. Klenz’s work has been included in various group- and solo exhibitions nationally as well as internationally such as the Finish Museum of Photography in Helsinki, the Phoenix Art Museum in Arizona, the SeaCity Museum in Southampton, Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, The Fine Art Museum in Luleå, Museum Kuenstlerkolonie in Darmstadt, Focal Point Gallery in Southend-on-Sea, the Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston’/London to name a few.

Her work has been reviewed in various magazines and newspapers including Art Review, Art Monthly, The Architectural Review, The Times, The Independent, Camera Austria, Granta Magazine, History of Photography Journal, Portfolio Magazine amongst others. Her work has been published and discussed in various books such as Chris Townsends’s “New Art from London” by Thames & Hudson in 2006, Judith Rugg’s “Spatialities: The Geographies of Art and Architecture” by Intellect in 2012 and Robert Shore’s “Post-Photography: the Artist with a Camera” by Laurence King Publishing in 2014.

Her work has been most recently examined in Imogen Racz’s book “Art and Home: Comfort, Alienation and the Everyday” published by I.B.Tauris in 2015.
Klenz published her monograph “Polo bound for Passaic” in conjunction with the New Art Gallery Walsall, Street Level Photoworks Glasgow and the Goethe Institute Glasgow in 2009.
