Biography

STEPHAN CRASNEANSCKI
New York, USA


Was born in Odessa in 1969 and lives and works in New York.
After a BFA at the Parsons School of Design and a MFA at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, he creates Soundwalk in 2000.
His first audio-recorded wanderings in Chinatown and the Lower East Side quickly became classics and the Adidas Foundation sponsored other Soundwalks in the Bronx with Jazzy Jay and Afrika Bambaataa for which he was awarded an Audie Award in 2004. Since then, Soundwalk has developed an international catalogue with productions in Paris, London, Berlin, China, India, and Spain, here again awarded with a number of prizes: the Dalton Pen Award 2005 for the Sonic Memorial Soundwalk on Ground Zero with Paul Auster, the Audie Award 2007 for the Williamsburg Hasidic Soundwalks, the Audie Award 2009 for the Beijing Soundwalk with Gong Li. Stephan Crasneanscki works on a regular basis with major cultural institutions. His first exhibition of photographs was in Chelsea, New York in 2001. He has also done a number of artist portraits for Blast, Vogue, l’Officiel Voyages and reportages for National Geographic. In 2008, he photographed the twelve most influential religious leaders for the book authored by the brothers Naudet, «Au nom de Dieu» (In the name of God), and his work has been published in Newsweek International.
