    Andreas Kremer

In this series I integrate typical urban and landscape scenes into a spatially and culturally different context. Due to the resulting polarity, the surreal and sometimes dystopian-looking images appear like hypothetical sociological studies and as a metaphor of time. My aim is to illustrate the interaction between nature and the space claimed by humans in it, thereby highlighting current challenges such as climate change, rural exodus, exclusion or the clash of social orders.

Andreas Kremer was born near Cologne, Germany, where he is still living. After his studies of information science he worked in the economy for many years. In 2013 he became involved with photography again, quitted his consulting job and hasn’t put down his camera since. 2015 he started to work commercially by photographing Architecture and Interior Design. Andreas still enjoys to do this, but he prefers to pursue personal projects. His first photobook about Japan/Tokyo was published August 2019 at KERBER Verlag.

Awards Andreas images and his photobook were awarded and featured by several international photocontests and magazines like Kolga Photo Award (Georgia), Tokyo, Budapest and Moskau International Foto Awards, The Independent Photographer, IPA International Photography Awards, Lensculture, L´Oeil de la Photographie, Leica LFI, PX3 Paris, and others.
