Chasper Senn is a photographer currently based in the United States.
His works are mainly in a thematic series with a dash of portraiture; pursuing humanitarian issues and addressing social injustices.
He was raised in Southern Germany. Instead of pursuing archeology like he thought he would after seeing an excavation site in what is now the Czech Republic as a young boy, he followed an education in art and design, starting an interest in photography in 11th grade. Both his parents are professional creatives and always encouraged his interest in art.
In 2010 he completed his fine arts degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Germany. Parallel to his studies he spent one year in an exchange program at the Ecole Nationale supérieure d´art in Nancy, France. He studied French, developed his photo and video editing skills and began working in the film industry as a trainee.
Back in Germany he spent another year as a guest auditor in the department of screenplay writing at the University of Television and Film in Munich, Germany.
An intense number of years working in the camera and lighting department for various movie, television and commercial projects followed. When he wasn´t working on set, he was working on his photography and was traveling to capture new and interesting photos.
From 2014 – 2017 he worked as an instructor for camera and lighting technique at CIMdata, an Academy of Education for media design in Berlin.
Currently he is in the green card process for the United States after meeting his American wife in the Republic of Moldova. Besides learning to ride horses, speak Spanish and trying to understand Americans from a sociological point of view, he is documenting his immigration process and captures this in his photography.
