About

Toby Binder, born 1977 in Esslingen, studied at the Stuttgart Academy of Art and Design. Soon he focused his photography on social and political topics. Based in Argentina and Germany he works on assignments and personal projects where he finds his topics in post-war and crisis situations as well as in the daily life of the people.
