Heiner L. Beisert (b.1999) is a German visual artist. Born into the topography of East Germany, he has been defining his approach to documenting spaces and the environmental portrayal of cityscapes, ever since he was gifted a camera at the age of only seven. His works consist of a thematically unique amalgamation of a wide plethora of aspects intertwined with political criticism. The portrayal of existential dimensions through the visual recreation of human solitude and mortality in the context of modern performance societies, delivers innovative perspectives on the matter of contemporary photography. He currently lives and works in Rostock, Germany as well as Poland. Heiner L. Beisert is a co-founder of the Polish photography publishing house and artist collective RUST Publishing.
