25 YEARS OF FASHION WAS THE START
BACK TO THE BEGINNING: BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY
Lars Beusker was born in Germany in 1973, father of 5 children. He discovered his love for black-and-white photography in the age of 15. After graduating from high school he worked for four years as a photography assistant followed by studying photography as a student of Prof. Gottfried Jäger and Prof. Gerd Fleischmann.
He works as a fashion photographer and, from 2003, runs his own design office based in Stromberg/Westphalia. Since 2013, Beusker has been working on various freelance projects, always in black and white, alongside his commissioned work. In 2017, he opened his first gallery in a Bauhaus pavilion made of wood and glass built for the purpose.
Influenced by the intensive contact with his friend David Yarrow, it is not surprising that wildlife photography has captivated him the most. The closeness to wild animals, the tranquillity of untouched nature and the people in these habitats never cease to fascinate him – he travels into the wilderness as often as he can, capturing unique moments in black and white, as beautiful as portraits of wild animals have rarely been seen. In 2018, this work becomes his new trademark after he hung up fashion photography.
