Photographer, Berlin, Germany
So you are interested in my work...and….me ?
Well.. Well.. than….here are some infos.
My name is Christian Kryl.
I am born 1979 in Bielefeld, Germany.
Before becoming a photographer i made an “Ausbildung” to be an import-export business man "Well what can i say …… was not my thing ! "
So...I went back to school to do my “Abitur”
…..Than I travelled around the world and specially around Europe …
I took my first pictures of co-workers while cutting
vine-grapes in the mountains of Haro, Rijoa……..
…...That moment I knew that I want to become a photographer, so I applied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague Netherlands with the pictures of the harvest and they accepted me, what was awesome, but time is flying, so I finished my study in 2009 with……. Cum Laude, what should be mentioned here :)
Since than I do projects that i love doing (mostly about places that get visited by the Jet Set)
…..I don’t claim to change the World with my pictures, I just feel the need to make them.
Well… looks like some people like the stuff I am doing… so….
I won some Prizes.
2014 ARTE Creative-Portfolio Prize, Duesseldorf (D)
2012 Prix Voies Off in Arles (F)
2013 The Mondriaan Fonds and the Photo- Festival Noorderlicht
in Groningen selected me for a grant with 6 other photographers
from this Grant i produced “permission”
I also Love working in commission, the Challenge to deliver in a very short time , for Portraits often just minutes, is yeah… really challenging and fun !
