Zara Pfeifer based in Europe was born in Cologne, Germany in 1984. She studied Architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Photography at the Friedl Kubelka School for Artistic Photography Vienna.
In her work she shows a profound interest in spatial and social phenomena. In her long-term projects, she blends into the world that she is documenting– not only as an observer, but as an active part of her social surroundings. Be it as a co-driver in a truck on a route through Europe or joining the social life in the modernist housing project Alterlaa. Besides photography, she reveals her findings in lectures, guided tours, short videos and drawings.
