"For me, street photography is only a term that describes photography in a space created by humans.


I want to capture this space with all its facets for myself. And this with the equally numerous facets of photography, be it documentary, aesthetic, abstract or humorous".

My name is Torsten "TeeKay" Köster.

I was born 1970 and I am  based in Stuttgart (Germany). My work as a photographer is focused on Street - and Urban Photography.


Parts of my work were shown in several international individual and group exhibitions, as well as published in books and magazines. 


Contact me for prints, jobs, exhibitions, workshops or just a chat.


I'm a nice guy and I don't bite ;)
