In 2016 I fulfilled my dream of having my own photo studio and opened the STUDIO BENHAMMER in Cologne Poll. Right on the Rhine. With a view of the cathedral. Since moving in four years ago, the studio, like my own work, has been in constant change. Sometimes it’s an exhibition space, sometimes it’s a warehouse for book distribution. Then it’s a creative oasis, then again a meeting place for creative people, but then again it’s office, meeting room and place where all my free black and white routes are created for weeks.

Studio BENHAMMER is located in the south of Cologne on the Schäl Sick only a few meters away from the Rhine and the Poller Wiesen or the Südbrücke. It has its own parking lot and is located in one of Cologne’s largest artists’ houses.

For friends and friends of friends the studio BENHAMMER is available on a few days a year as a rental studio for your own content production.

Open studios 2019 in Cologne

In Cologne, as in many other cities, there are regular art and cultural events. I try to participate whenever I can. Within the open studios 2019 I opened the studio door for friends and interested people for the 6th time. Since the studio is constantly changing, it is always a nice occasion for me to document the changes and to prepare the studio for a “small exhibition”.
