About the photographer

Born in Nuremberg, Germany, Astrid Krehan’s original works convert modern-day spaces and objects into highly saturated color images. Her fluid series often verges on the abstract, whether capturing the tranquility of rural China or the vibrant aura of Shanghai, where Astrid has lived and worked since 2014. Astrid studied with renowned photojournalist Scott Davis, traveling to remote destinations to hone her skills and subsequently refining her own visual and conceptual vocabulary, which emerges through her play with light and texture. Her images are printed on high quality Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper, coated with Plexiglas® acrylic face mounting on aluminum backing. A doctor of natural sciences, Astrid’s photographs reveal a compassionate understanding of the living world. To view more work by Astrid Krehan, please visit

Astrid Krehan is a Board Member and Lifetime Platinum Benefactor of Shanghai Sunrise.
