Anne Schönharting
* 1973 – based in Berlin

Her family's colonial heritage, long-term portrait series in Berlin-Charlottenburg, nomads in Kyrgyzstan, an urban utopia in India, fashion campaign for Brioni or life between the walls in Belfast - Anne Schönharting deals with a wide range of topics in her photographic and artistic work. In doing so, she moves between different genres such as portraiture, artistic documentary photography, fashion and social study.

Anne Schönharting has been a member of the Ostkreuz agency since 1999 and, in addition to her own long-term artistic projects, works on commission for national and international clients. She has already received several awards for her work.

From 2020 to 2021, she taught as a visiting professor of photography at Bauhaus University Weimar and also taught as a visiting professor of photography at Muthesius Kunsthochschule in Kiel in 2022.

In 2020, Hartmann Books published her award-winning first book, "The Legacy", an exploration of her family's colonial past. In October 2022, she presented her long-term project "Habitat", in which she portrayed and staged people in their flats over a period of ten years, in an extensive solo exhibition at the Haus am Kleistpark in Berlin. At the same time, "Habitat" was published as a large-format illustrated book by Hartmann Books.
