Astrid Kragolsen-Kille: Director/Art Director/Producer and Photographer
Astrid was born in Zambia and went to school in England. Living between so highly contrasting worlds ignited a fascination for the idiosyncrasies of Africa. As the daughter of an award winning photographer, many of her childhood hours were spent in her father’s darkroom. Colour and light have always been part of her visual language and years later she has a collection of incredible images. Working on projects with international broadcasters, not only as photographer but as director and producer, has given Astrid the opportunity to travel to many different African countries. Her camera is always nearby; ready to capture the world around her. Astrid photographs for exhibitions, magazines and books whilst her commercial work for advertising, billboards and catalogues have been used both locally and internationally. Astrid is passionate about people and telling their stories.
