Hensel Coe | British photographer who draws from his experience in fashion, portraiture, club, and documentary photography to tell his stories. With influences ranging from David Lachapelle to Carravagio, this artist highlights the narrative as one of the driving features of his images. His use of highly stylised colour grading and cinematic framing allows Hensel-Coe a distinct visual language to immerse his viewers in. The images on display come from the editorial shot for KALTBLUT magazine, and it’s considered to be one of his greatest editorial achievements to date; The Garden of Earthly Delights. @MrHotshoe
“Berlin frequently challenges our expectations of what a city could be like; I’m documenting evidence of a place with very different civic values.” – V. Hensel-Coe
