Bernd Rathjen, born in Hamburg in 1966, started taking photographs at the age of 16. After working in the music, television and event industry for 30 years he increasingly turned to photography a few years ago. He created a number of series about architecture, cars, art and people. Tegel Moments was inspired by Rathjen’s many travels but also by his father, who worked as a master mechanic for Lufthansa. Rathjen first published Tegel motifs on social media, now @tegelmoments has its own instagram account. Fine art prints are available for purchase at exhibitions and by direct order from this website exclusively.
Bernd Rathjen lives in Berlin.
