David Shokouhbeen was born in 1984 in Herdecke, Germany. He is photographing the streets since 2006. Beginning with exclusively black and white photography, he started developing film in a self-built darkroom at his parents’ house. Motivated by his idols of Street Photography, he started shooting in color more often.   Professionally, studied to become a teacher for Spanish and Mathematics, he ended up in his father's family business, renovating houses. Always on the road with one of his favorite cameras, his path led him to study Photography at the Folkwang University of Arts in Essen, Germany.
