Andreas B. Krueger was born in 1982 in northern Germany. His german-ukrainian parents raised him in Berlin, but he also played chess during hot summers in Eastern Europe and got to know strange french accents in Québec during those endless winter months.
After having said good-bye to school, he worked in the research department of a hospital, got up at 6 a.m. every morning, bought a camera from his first salary and dusted off his dad’s old darkroom.
It was in 2003 when things started to get serious. He enrolled at University of Fine Arts in Berlin, studied communication, photography and video. He worked as research assistant to Prof. Zielinski and with the communications department for documenta 12, amongst others. Berghain didn’t even exist, so he directed short movies and shot countless rolls of film. He spent one year in Paris, watching Rohmer movies, drinking cidre and studying cinema history and media theory. Good Old Times.
From 2011, he has been working as a photographer, director and visual artist, influenced by a journalistic, documentary approach as well as fictional and narrative aspects. His work was exhibited in cities such as Paris, Berlin, Arles or Brussels. Based in Paris, he works for different clients all over Europe and worldwide. Still, he’s back to Berlin from time to time and grabs a beer with friends and family.
