Jörg Brüggemann

Jörg Brüggemann

Over the past three years, Jörg Brüggemann travelled to Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the United States to photograph these fans known as metalheads. In some of the resulting portraits, it looks as if Brüggemann not only travelled to different countries but also back in time, to the 1980's - the period of heavy metal’s supposed peak. All of these images have one thing in common: they show that no matter who metalheads are or where they come from, they are united by their music across borders, generations, genders, religions and social classes.

Born in 1979, Jörg Brüggemann studied photography at the University of the Arts in Bremen under the guidance of Professor Peter Bialobrzeski. Since September 2008, he has worked as a freelance photographer for German magazines including ZEIT Magazin, DUMMY, and NEON. He became a member of the photographer agency Ostkreuz in October 2009. Brüggemann lives and works in Berlin.
