Lisa Wassmann is a photographic artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. Raised in the midst of a divided city as the daughter of a magician and a sound engineer, Wassmann spent most of her childhood backstage in the Theater des Westens where her parents used to work.
She began drawing and painting at an early age, keeping her artistic sensibilities sharp until she got her first camera at age 10. As time progressed, a passion in the interaction,communication, and staging of photographs and videos developed into the work she is producing today.
Wassmann studied Communication Design before pursuing her career in Photography. Her work has led her to local and international collaborations with BPitch Control, Dazed&Confused, VICE Magazine, Süddeutsche Magazin, ZEIT Magazin, and Sleek among others. Keeping the magic of her childhood alive,Wassmann’s work runs the gamut from contemporary portraiture and documentary photography with a subtle, mystical flair.
