Philipp Keel is an artist and author as well as the publisher of Diogenes. He studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston and at Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen in Munich, before moving to California and working in various artistic disciplines. His photographs, paintings, drawings, and prints have since been shown in numerous international exhibitions, most recently at Bildhalle Zurich, and are present in leading collections. He became known for his bestselling series All About Me and All About Us (Random House, 1998), for Color (Steidl, 2003) and the series Simple Diary (TASCHEN). In 2014 Keel’s project State of Mind (Nieves) featuring drawings, watercolors and silkscreens was shown at Villa Flor in S-chanf. In 2017 Steidl published the monography Splash, which presents a rigorous selection of Keel’s photographic work from the past years. Philipp Keel lives in Zurich.
