Jurgen Wettke was born in 1953 in Hagen, Germany. In addition to his successful career as a leader in one of the largest corporate consulting firms, he has been a passionate photographer since he was a boy. He wants his work to touch the viewer emotionally and raise awareness of how fragile our planet's ecosystems are. His first photo book, The Art of the Wadden Sea, published by teNeues in 2013, was a resounding success: exhibits in Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Kampen (Sylt), and Salzburg marked its debut, with extensive press coverage as well. With the Wadden Sea and the Namib Desert, Jurgen Wettke has found motifs that are constantly changing due to the forces of nature. His photographs are notable not only for their aesthetic qualities, which make them highly desirable collector's items, but also for the sheet uniqueness of each and every shot.
