Sven Marquardt to many as the face of the door of the famous Berghain.
But Sven is more, he is a gifted photographer.
Sven Marquardt started his career in photography during the early eighties in East Berlin. After his education as camera assistant and photographer at DEFA (GDR's public-owned film studio), Marquardt's first publications appeared in Der Sonntag and Das Magazin. From 1985 until 1986, Sven Marquardt worked as an assistant for Rudolf Schäfer – an iconic figure in East Germany's photo scene. Next to his work as fashion photographer for Sibylle, Marquardt portrayed the artists of the fashion spectacle Allerleirauh (1987–1989) as well as exceptional black and white photographies of East Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg scene. After the Wall came down, he immersed into the burgeoning club scene of a unified Berlin and processed his impressions in his exhibitions, with “staged photography” for Levi's during Berlin's Fashion Week and time and time again through fashion shootings for magazines likes Qvest and Front. Since 2007 Sven Marquardt significantly co-defined the image of Berghain's OstGut Ton record label.
Sven Marquard's first illustrated book “Zukünftig Vergangen“ was published by Mitteldeutscher Verlag in 2010.
