Benjamin Pfau is a German photographer. He was born in Bielefeld in 1990. His work centers around themes of alienation and isolation in the globalized, ever-connected world. He creates extensive photojournals, which he eventually distills into fragmentary essays often juxtaposed with poetry and other forms of writing. In 2019, he published Isthmus, a visual diary of his life amongst a group of down-and-out exiles in Bangkok. Since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic his focus has shifted towards examining the emotional impact of digital media and the study of generative image modeling. He currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
