Joachim Brohm studied visual communications at Die Folkswangschule in Essen, 1977 - 1983, and apprenticed with Michael Schmidt, who was a major influence, 1978 -1979. In 1983, he was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to Ohio State University where he studied with Allan Sekula and Jonathan Green. He has been a freelance photographer since 1984, and variously been a lecturer of photography in Germany and abroad.
The majority of the photographs in this book were taken in the Ruhr area of Germany. A central theme is the interaction of humans in and with the landscape.
