Alexander Kreher, a native of Germany, is a photographer and filmmaker who currently lives in Richmond, Virginia.
He has won multiple awards for his film and photo projects, including the “Best Student Multimedia” award at the prestigious New York Photo Awards for his film "Street Dreams" about Zoe Romano’s solo run across the USA in 2011.
He works primarily in documentary photography and film, and delves deeply in his subjects’ lives, developing a style which seeks to understand eccentric personalities holistically, rather than just displaying them one-dimensionally.
He has worked for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Maine Today, and local production company The Branching.
He studied Digital Media and Print Design in Germany, won a scholarship to study at the renowned Salt Institute of Documentary Studies in Portland, ME, in 2012, and is now enrolled in the film program at VCU.
