Nils Stelte, born 1989 in Germany, is a Berlin-based photographer. He is a recent graduate of the Ostkreuz School of Photography where Ute Mahler mentored him. He holds a BA in Social Sciences from Humboldt University Berlin. With his background in the social sciences, Nils’ work explores changing socio-political beliefs and examines their influence on the individual. His latest work In Security documents the rise of security apparatuses, and portrays how they reflect and subtly contribute to the state of insecurity that defines our age. In Security won the Münzenberg Forum first prize and was selected and exhibited at Darmstädter Tage der Fotografie, Young PhotoBook – The PhooBook Museum by Markus Schaden, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Athens Photo Festival and Lumix Festival.
