Immo Klink creates images across the genres of art, commercial, editorial and fashion photography. Taking documentary approaches into fashion as well as introducing commercial aesthetics into documentary, art or campaigning is a constant in his visual language. With a variety of photographic styles he enquires into political and social matters of our time always keeping the possibilities of intervention or instigating change in mind. He has worked as an aide in German politics and engaged as a political activist in the UK. After graduating with a Master of the Laws he briefly joined Wolfgang Tillmans’ studio in London.
 
Immo has photographed and directed political campaigns with Benetton Unhate Foundation, Shelter, Amnesty International and Brandalism/Barnbrook. Amongst his commercial commissions are campaigns for Levi’s, Google and MC Saatchi.
 
Magazines contributions include Adbuster, Another Magazine, Camera Austria, Dazed&Confused, Exit, I-D, Jalouse, Independent Magazine&Review, Liberation, L’Officiel, New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, photoworks, Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazin and Zeit Magazin.
 
Immo’s work is held in various public collections and has been exhibited in FOAM (Amsterdam), Museum of Contemporary Art Castilla y Leon (MUSAC), National Portrait Gallery (London), Sala Rekalde (Bilbao), Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art (Sunderland), Museo del Xopo (Mexico City), The People’s Museum (Manchester) and Victoria&Albert Museum (London) amongst others.
