Kathrin Broden


About the artist:

Kathrin Broden is a contemporary urban art photographer.

Born in Düsseldorf she currently lives and works from her studio in Hennef near Cologne (Germany).

After her graduation at the „Rhein-Sieg-Kunst-Akademie 1999 she worked as a graphic designer for different advertising agencies before she concentrated her work on photography around 2009, a passion that has accompanied her throughout life.

In 2011 she became a full-time artist and participated in numerous national and international exhibitions.

With her photographic work, Kathrin Broden leads the viewer to mysterious places and lets them enter a world of decayed buildings.

Abandoned and derelict mansions, closed hotels, dead barracks and vacated industrial buildings, she takes us there, pulls us into many years of ongoing trial and makes us witnesses of Contemporary history.

She captures the specific atmosphere of these places and shares her own fascination for these buildings with the viewer, exposing the special magic and the beauty in decay.

The images are always a piece of contemporary history, showing a world in between yesterday and nowadays.

Her photographs are presented on firm, 308 g / m2 Hahnemühle paper in frame but without glass to create a matt, almost painterly impression. All works are editions of 10.
