Alexander Krohmer was born in Augsburg, Germany in 1973. He studied Mechanical Engineering at the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences and is currently working as an automotive developer in the US. He developed an active interest in photography at the age of 23 and has continued building on his artistic vision since. Among others, he participated in the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg, Austria and completed Independent Study at the Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence, Italy. He also took part in artistic photo groups in Munich, Germany. He's been part of the cooperative Soho Photo Gallery in New York since 2017.
In his long-term project "Encounters," Alexander depicts people he meets on the streets with a full-body portrait from the front and back. These photos were taken in cities such as Berlin, Havana, and New York, among others. A part of this project was on display last year at the Soho Photo Gallery.
Alexander is currently working on another project called "Meadowlands," in which he illustrates the juxtaposition between New Jersey's nature and industry at night. Some of this work can be seen at the Soho Photo Gallery in New York this September.
