Mat Hennek was born in the Black Forest area of Germany in 1969 and today lives with his partner, the French pianist Hélène Grimaud, in upstate New York and California. While previously based in Berlin, Hennek created influential photographic portraits for the entertainment and music industries, before turning his attention to natural landscapes. He has held solo exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia and the USA. Steidl published Hennek’s Woodlands project in 2017, which he presented with Grimaud as the multimedia concert Woodlands and Beyond… at Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, combining his photos with her performance of romantic and impressionistic compositions.
