Sven Hoffmann developed his shaped photographs by dealing with the subject of water. Based on motifs discovered by the imagination in the structures and reflections of a water surface – similar to cloud formations – he cuts his photos printed on aluminum composite plates into forms such as the “the poodle” offered here from a photograph of a water surface in Madagascar.


Born in 1956 in Koblenz, Sven Hoffmann studied sports at the Free University of Berlin from 1985 to 1989, and from 1986 to 1992 also photography at the Hochschule der Künste. He then lectured at universities in Berlin, Nuremberg and Finland. Already during his studies Hoffmann concentrated on the subject of water. Starting from the depiction of the element, he expanded his artistic exploration to ecological, economic, and social aspects and initiated the Aqua Globalis project in 2012. Sven Hoffmann lives and works in Berlin.
