I have been working in Kenya for the last 20 years on the long-term photographic GEO project, Basic Needs: "Menschenkinder" - how a child lives in Africa and, in the meantime, young adults in Kenya (1998-2019). Several photographers worked on three continents, Germany, Vietnam and Kenya, to tell the story of humankind's children.
Last published in GEO magazine, 'Perspective' (10/19)

Seit 2017 arbeite ich fortlaufend an meinem freien Projekt zur Natur in Deutschland. Nach mehr als 20 Jahren der Dokumentarfotografie für politische und soziale Themen hat sich mein Verhältnis zur Natur intensiviert. Im Fokus stehen für mich allem die Bäume, für die ich im Laufe der Zeit großen Respekt entwickelt habe: Ihre komplexen Strukturen, ihre Wandlungsfähigkeit und ihre Schönheit. Dabei berücksichtige ich die neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse. Das Projekt umfasst alle Jahreszeiten.

Since 2017 I'm working ongoing on an independent project about nature in Germany. After more than 20 years of documentary photography on political and social topics, my relationship to nature has intensified. My focus is on trees, for which I have developed great respect over the years: their complex structures, their ability to change and their beauty. Above all, however, the need for protection - nature does not need us, but we need nature. In doing so, I take into account the new scientific findings. The project covers all seasons.

About

Andrea Künzig is a photographer based in Berlin. She has lived and worked in various countries in Africa and Asia. One of her latest projects has been documenting People of Turkey, while living for 4 years in Istanbul (2010-14). Since 2017 she 's working ongoing on an independent project about nature in Germany.

Andrea received her degree in Political Science at the Free University Berlin. In 1994 she went to Jerusalem to document the Israeli-Palestinian people between Peace efforts and conflicts.

This was followed by long stays in Israel, the Arab world and in Kenya (1994 to 1998). Much later, she attended a professional class in Photography by Prof. Arno Fischer in Berlin from 2001 to 2004.

Andrea undertakes documentary photography projects worldwide, focusing on political, social and humanitarian themes. Her clients are distinguished magazines and newspapers, including GEO, Time Magazine, The National Geographic Traveller, Deutsche Welle and Die ZEIT as well as NGOs, such as the German Foundation for World Population, SOS Children's Village, Terre des Femmes and UNDP.

She has received several awards and grants for her photographic work, most recently a media prize from "Kindernothilfe" on the theme: "The brave children of Kampala" (2013). She has received two "VG Bild Art" scholarships from Germany, and from 2012 to 2014 she worked at the Robert Bosch Foundation as a Jury member on the "border crossing" program.

Andrea has published two books: " Visions: Palestine", 2004 and "Istanbulum", 2010.
