Andrzej Steinbach

Born 1983, Czarnków, Poland.
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Andrzej Steinbach graduated in 2013 from the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig, where he later also studied with German photographer Heidi Specker. He was awarded the Federal Prize for Art Students in 2017–2018. His work questions the conventions of the photographic portrait, as well as our reading patterns, the changeability of appearances, and the way in which signs and gestures are decoded. Besides his participation in several international group shows, he recently had a solo exhibition at the Fructa Space in Munich. Each series in his suite of portraits has been published in book form by Spector Books.
