Berlin-based photographer Peter Kaaden grew up hanging around in studios where his mother worked as a stylist. Influenced by the likes of Juergen Teller, Ryan McGinley and Nan Goldin, his photography has a raw, vivid quality with grainy shots of flesh, fast food and animals that capture the full-blooded energy and spontaneity of youth. Today Dazed presents an exclusive preview of Gold and Silber, Kaaden's first monographs out now on Pogobooks. The volumes include Kaaden’s personal and professional jobs, as well as irreverent, offbeat and oh-so-slightly kitsch shots of friends and acquaintances including Susanne Oberbeck and fellow Dazed contrib, the writer Karley Sciortino.
