Mateo Hamann was born in New York in 1997. In 2009, he moved to Frankfurt, Germany. After his arrival, he explored the city and immediately got inspired by the skyscrapers. He started to take architecture photos of Frankfurt and two years later he had his first exhibition which was followed by exhibitions in galleries, a museum, and a university. His first collaboration was with CAPCO, a management consulting company who wanted to create a photo calendar for the year of 2014 with his photographs. In 2015, he was hired to work with a team to create two promotional films for Gräflicher Park Grand Resort and Bilster Berg Drive Resort. His next project was with Oceans & Company, an Asset Management and Investment Advisory firm who wanted to publish a photography book with his photos of the skyscrapers in Frankfurt. From 2016-2017 Mateo Hamann worked closely with Radisson Blu to produce and place 740 original artworks in a brand new hotel in Mannheim, Germany.
