Andreas Kremer began his artistic path as a career changer. Through his studies of computer science, he quickly became very close to the digital media and image processing options that emerged in the 1990s.
Influenced by artists such as Daido Moriyama, he has been looking for the special gaze. The fascination for Tokyo/Japan culminated in his first photo book TENSION in 2019, published by the renowned KERBER Verlag and awarded gold a short time later.
In parallel, he was always fascinated as well by the staged photography of Jeff Wall or the monumental scenes of Andreas Gursky. In contrast to street photography, which crops a “section” out of the world, Kremer's desire to be a “picture maker” like a painter is what drives him more and more.
This wish culminated in his current project The Last Resort in 2021, in which he is using the collage technique in a modern, digital form, following the tradition of using collages to point out social or political grievances. The project can be seen as a further development of "Individual Ornament" created in 2018. In contrast to Gursky, it is not about a uniform ornament of the mass, the message of individuality and the associated tolerance towards the other message permeates all of his works. It is the core message in his book TENSION, and in the parallel series Lost In Tension. Kremer has taken part in international photocontest since 2016. He has won several awards and his images have been featured in online magazines and portals.
