J. KONRAD SCHMIDT

Konrad was born in the year, George Orwell wrote a book about and grew up in an architect family in Germany. After school he escaped the normative force of bourgeois society and took the chance to tie together the three big loves of his life: human faces, photography and fashion.

He finished photography studies with excellent examination. Ever since Konrad works as freelance photographer based in Hamburg. He works and lives as a “citizen of nowhere” on the old European axles between Hamburg and London as well as Berlin and Paris.

J. Konrad Schmidt is considered the “entfant visible” of young photographers.

He’s a creator. He did what he can’t!
And here we are!
