Spanish-German born artist Astrid Sterner started photography at an early age, documenting her surroundings and creating stories using her friends as main subjects. After being accepted into Central Saint Martins in 2007, she moved to London where she would study photography for the next years. There she experimented with a large range of lighting and imagery techniques.

She was later accepted into a special training program with the Magnum Collective for young upcoming photographers. After graduation, Astrid moved to NYC where she worked for two years for renowned fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti.
