Klaus Lenzen

Klaus Lenzen is a Düsseldorf-based photographer. In his latest series, Pole Vault, he endeavours to portray sport from an aesthetic perspective.

He pays attention to the elegant shapes and structures created by athletes in motion. Lenzen notes that these minimal compositions are hushed moments of movement and time.

Recent awards include Category Winner at the Sony World Photography Awards and the Siena International Photo Awards in 2018.

The Pole Vault series will be exhibited in April at the Aperture Gallery in New York as part of the winning photographs and Jurors’ Picks from the Lensculture Black & White Photography Awards.
