Volker Seding studied under master photographer Klaus Berger in Hannover, Germany, and while at art school, he studied drawing, painting, and later cinematography. He immigrated to Canada in 1966 where he worked as a cinematographer doing documentary films, industrial commercials, and feature films. In 1976, he returned to his first love, photography, and worked solely as an artist until his untimely death in 2007. His many different photographic projects are connected by a common aesthetic that is sculptural, precise, and always beautiful.
