Welcome to n8blau, the portfolio website of the german photographer Ralf Heppel.
Get an overview of my work.


Since my childhood, I have been fascinated by the foam of the days and the special hustle and bustle of the city: I still remember being pulled by my grandmother’s hand through the grey, noisy and brewery-smelling streets of my home town. At the time, this was much more frightening than fascinating for me.
Today I look for traces of these memories every now and then. I like to revive past impressions in my pictures. In this way, you might find a common thread from Hannover-Linden to Hanoi, from Berlin to New York City or Paris to Istanbul …
I prefer the rough edges in all cities. Dressed-up monuments only interest me when there is real life going on around them.

I am always looking for the beauty in the banal, also in aging and decay.

In this portfolio you find my favorite pictures and my most important projects of the last 20 years.
