Andreas Sterzing is a German editorial and portrait photographer.  For 20 years he lived in New York, working on international magazine assignments.

In 1983 he launched his career with photos of Pier 34 and the artists taking part in the project, and with stories about the East Village art scene.  Since then his work has been published in many prestigious publications including Stern, Der Spiegel, Geo, Zeit Magazin, Marie-Claire and the New York Times Magazine. 

After moving to England in 2005, Andreas started teaching at Falmouth University in Cornwall, where he is now a Senior Lecturer, leading the Professional Practice module for BA Photography.

Since 2016 Andreas’ work on the Pier 34 project, the East Village art scene and the Alphabet City neighbourhood has featured in exhibitions in museums and galleries internationally, mainly as analogue or digital slideshows.  Andreas now divides his time between London and Cornwall.
