After studying architecture at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design Ulrich Schwarz began working as an architectural photographer at Atelier Kinold in Munich in 1993.
Since then he has established himself as one of the leading architectural photographers in Germany. Among his clients are Stefan Braunfels, Herzog & de Meuron, Hans Kollhoff, Kuehn Malvezzi, Müller Reimann Architekten, I. M. Pei, Weinmiller Architekten and both German and international architectural magazines.
Despite his strict approach the work of Ulrich Schwarz impresses by the accuracy of his architectural exploration well exceeding mere documentation. Prerequisite for this are his analytical stance and avoiding extreme angles of view. Conscious of the fact that the photographic depiction always constitutes a reality of its own thereby creating a new architectural reality.
