Udo Spreitzenbarth is an internationally acclaimed fine art and fashion photographer, whose photos have graced the covers of Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and many more. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions in New York, Berlin, Shanghai, Beijing, Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart. Udo has captured many iconic stars and personalities of our time, including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Meg Ryan, Salma Hayek, John Legend, The Jonas Brothers, Tyra Banks, The Beach Boys, and Usain Bolt, among others. He also photographed legendary artists such as Christo, Richard Meyer and the late Helmut Newton.

Inspired by Baroque painter Caravaggio as well as classic Hollywood film noir, his signature use of light and shadow dramatizes the scene and creates tension. This tension, coupled with capturing a precise moment, seems to allow the viewer to get a glimpse into the soul of the subject, rather than just seeing the two-dimensional surface.
