Andreas Fux is a German photographer. Andreas Fux grew up as a citizen of the GDR in East Berlin. 1980–1982 he trained as an electrical fitter and since 1983 he has been autodidactically approaching photographic work. In 1988 his first photographic works were published in Das Magazin , a monthly issue in East Berlin with a focus on culture and lifestyle. A year later he worked as a freelancer for the magazine. For Das Magazin, Fux provided photographic contributions from the East German punk and youth scene, which was initially defined by clothing and fashionable improvisation. In 1989 he worked on photo productions for DEFA-Documentaries. Since 1990 Andreas Fux has been working as a freelance photographer for various newspapers and magazines and has dedicated himself to his own artistic projects. Fux belongs to the Prenzlauerberg photo artist scene whose work documented the last decade of the GDR, the transition and the transition to the FRG, and is their most prominent representative alongside Sven Marquart, with whom he has been friends since 1984. In 1992 he published his first own publication entitled The Russians are coming to accompany the exhibition of the same name in the Janssen Photo Gallery in Berlin as well as in Hamburg and Munich. Andreas Fux became known to a broader audience through the photo series Die süße Haut (1995–2005), a series of portraits with a focus on tattoos and scratches, in which he sometimes accompanied his models for years and repeatedly, mostly nocturnal shootings in the neutrally illuminated ones white room of his studio. He took up the subject of nudes, body culture and sexuality again in more recent works, for example in the series At the End of the Night, in which a black background is used and the play with the now punctual light seems to sculpt and fragment the models. Andreas Fux lives and works in Berlin.
