Alexander Kadow was born in 1985 in Winsen/Luhe, Germany.
Since graduating as a photographer, at the Lette Verein Berlin in 2010, he has been working as a freelance photo artist.
He completed the master class of Ute Mahler and Ingo Taubhorn at the Ostkreuzschule Berlin in 2017-2019 and the Master of Fine Arts at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg in the class of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin in 2019-2021.
His photographic compositions are created in series of works and are each created in specially designed, conceptually inspired, experimental set-ups. Techniques of the photo and image industry serve as his medium - analogue and digital, classical and modern. In combination with motifs and objects from everyday life, culture or science, questions about the objectivity of photographic images are placed in the centre.
