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 two big loves of his life: human faces and “the good photo”.

He finished photography studies with excellent examination and ever since works as independant photographer based in Berlin.

He works and lives as a “citizen of everywhere” on the old European axles between Berlin and Paris as well as Hamburg and London.

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