Siegfried Hansen (born 1961) is a German photographer, known for his photographs in Hamburg.
Hansen was born in 1961 in Meldorf, Germany. He lives and works in Hamburg, Germany. Hansen began as a street photographer in 2002 and joined the In-Public street photography collective in 2014. His work has been included in Fotoforum; Photographie; LFI, Leica Fotografie International; Professional Photographer and Fotocommunity Plus.
Hansen's book Hold the Line was published in 2015. Colin Pantall called it "street photography" but praised its use of color and composition, its diverse references to the work of photographers past and current, and the success of these references:
You're seeing something that you've seen before, but in a style that Hansen has made his own. He's doing the same thing others have done, but he's doing it differently. That's a really difficult thing to do, especially in an arena so laden with heavyweight genre as street photography.
Jim Casper of LensCulture wrote that "every single image in the book is a gem".2012: Der erwartete Zufall, Galerie Kunst-Nah, Hamburg, Germany
