Munich DE | 18.12.2023


Claus Potthoff (*1963 in Stuttgart) studied product and automotive design at the University of Applied Sciences Pforzheim (Germany) from 1985 to 1989 and has been working in the automotive industry as a designer in various companies and positions from 1989 to 2023. Living since 2009 in Munich (Germany) , he devotes himself to photography in addition to his work as a design strategist at Audi AG. His focus is on individual image series, which differ greatly in terms of content and aesthetics and show his curiosity to discover photography for himself from a wide variety of perspectives.

In 2016 and 2018, some of his series of images were presented to a small audience in two solo exhibitions.


Starting from summer 2021 he has been working in his small studio in the building of Kunstlabor 2 in Munich and at the end of 2023 also in Beijing (China) as his secondary center of life.


In spring 2024 he takes part at the Munich Art Fair ARTMUC 2024 and displayed some of his photography projects.
