Stefanie Schneider (1968 - )
Stefanie Schneider is a German photographer living in Berlin and Los Angeles. She is known for using expired Polaroid instant film material to achieve an effect of washed-out colors and random artifacts from the deprecation of the chemicals. Combined with her preferred choice of location, the American West (especially Twenty-nine Palms, CA, which served as location and title to one of her books), and the mounting of sequential images in a panel, the photographs evoke the impression of faded film stills. Schneider's work is internationally exhibited in galleries and private collections and released in books and exhibition catalogs. Stefanie Schneider holds a MFA in photography from the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, Germany.
