Andreas Steen


I'm basically the result of growing up amongst all sorts of painters, activists, stage-artists, hippies, somewhat crazy people and wonderful weirdos, with a shared respect for creativity and going for what you want, instead of what you're supposed to go for. I was indoctrinated with a delicate mixture of Star Trek and Magritte ever since I can remember. I learned at a young age to love both the most clichéed late 40's ads ("Most doctors smoke camels" anyone?), and deeply introverted niche performances my modern interpretive dancers.

Whether I'm looking at Heinz Edelmanns posters, Turning Torso in Malmø, Eddie Adams harrowing photographs, the over the top plastic pink-gum creations of LaChapelle, Mucha's romantic art noveau illustrations, layers of clouds moving in the sky, the texture of my skin, the hilariously terribad costumes of "The Labyrinth" or something else. I'm always thinking of, and looking for, lines and shapes and symbols and colors, and how to put it into a photograph.

The easiest way of defining me as a photographer, is pretty much going to be that I'm like a dog chasing cars. I see ideas and possibilities for photographs everywhere, and then I chase them.
