My Bio

Steve Diet Goedde has been a fine art photographer for over 30 years. He is known for his subtle approach to photographing the high-gloss fetish world in a very non-gloss, down-to-earth style. His attention to composition and black and white tonal quality has given him the title of the Ansel Adams of fetish. Steve established his photographic style in the early 1990s in Chicago where he photographed the contents of his first book "The Beauty of Fetish" (Edition Stemmle) which was released in 1998. That same year, Steve relocated to Los Angeles where he continued to define his evolving style. This west coast work was later compiled in his second Edition Stemmle book "The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II" in 2001. In 2006, Slish Pix released a DVD compilation of his work entitled "Living Through Steve Diet Goedde". In 2009, Steve collaborated with French composer Robert Waechter on a CD entitled "GoeddeConcerto" (ReadyMade Music) in which the ConcertMaster of the Philharmonic of Nice, France interprets 21 of Steve's photographs into 21 mini-concertos. In 2015, Steve celebrated his 25 years of photography with the first book of a 3-volume book retrospective of his work entitled "ARRANGEMENTS" published by Century Guild. The third volume of the work was released first with the following volumes coming a few years later. In 2019, he released a new book of work entitled "Extempore" published by London's Circa Press.

Here's the official announcement for my upcoming solo show in Hong Kong. Like a lot of big art shows in Asia, this one is not in a gallery but in a shopping mall. The Landmark is Hong Kong's ritziest luxury mall/hotel so the work will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people who normally wouldn't see my work. There won't be an actual opening - the work will just be on display starting the beginning of April and throughout all of May. Steve Diet Goedde: The Modern Vintage Duration: April 1 - May 31, 2013 The Landmark 8/F, One Exchange Square 3rd Floor Central, Hong Kong The revolving door of fashion always comes back around to its roots

Hi Steve,

I return frequently to your gallery to wallow in the shear delight of your photographs. I guess nostalgia is the reason - nothing wrong in that. Brilliant work.
