Alexander Kadow was born in 1985 in Hamburg Germany, where he lives and works. He studied photo design at Lette Verein Berlin and works as a freelance photographer since 2011. Since the topics in his documentary photo projects treat the relationship between nature and human kind and because of his interest in natural sciences he studied energy and environmental engineering at the TUHH (technical university Hamburg-Harburg) for two years from 2012-2014 until he focused on photography again. With a new point of view he started to research on environmental and historical topics. The photographs mostly taken with a 4x5“ camera concentrate on precise composition and contentual reference to the topic. Since 2015 he studies fine arts at the HfbK (University of Fine Arts) and since 2017 in the Masterclass of Ute Mahler und Ingo Taubhorn at the Ostkreuzschule in Berlin.
