"... a powerful link between reality, fantasy and desire." 
Dr. Farshim about Sven Hagolani




I am Sven.

I have been living for 25 years in Berlin. From 1991 to 1993 I undertook my apprenticeship in photography at the Lette Verein Berlin. Since 1993 I have been working as a freelance photographer wherever my profession has taken me.
Photography opened many doors for me. It has taken me around the world and turned strangers into friends. 
I believe in the good in people, in love and serenity.


"Using a carefully planned staging, Sven takes everyday occurrences beyond the realm of banality, trying to inspire in his picture's spectators an awareness of the psychology and emotion contained in real-life situations.

His work could be described as documentary photography mixed with the fictional world of cinema and advertising, which creates a powerful link between reality, fantasy and desire." Dr. Farshim
