Haworth and St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation are delighted to present “China in Color”, an exclusive one-night photo exhibition of selected works by photographer Astrid Krehan. This
series of highly-saturated color images explores the unique lights and textures that have caught Astrid’s eye in China and are presented in her signature, high quality aluminum-backed Plexiglas® acrylic face mounting style. All images on display this evening are for purchase. Proceeds from sale will support Shanghai Sunrise, a charity that dedicates its work to support underprivileged youth in Shanghai. This luxury charity event is hosted in the beautiful Haworth Organic Workspace in the Jing’an Kerry Centre. Drinks and canapés will be provided for your enjoyment.
About the photographer
Born in Nuremberg, Germany, Astrid Krehan’s original works convert modern-day spaces and objects into highly saturated color images. Her fluid series often verges on the abstract, whether
capturing the tranquility of rural China or the vibrant aura of Shanghai, where Astrid has lived and worked since 2014. Astrid studied with renowned photojournalist Scott Davis, traveling to remote destinations to hone her skills and subsequently refining her own visual and conceptual vocabulary, which emerges through her play with light and texture. Her images are printed on high quality Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper, coated with Plexiglas® acrylic face mounting on aluminum backing. A doctor of natural sciences, Astrid’s photographs reveal a compassionate understanding of the living world. To view more work by Astrid Krehan, please visit www.astridkrehan.com. Astrid Krehan is a Board Member and Lifetime Platinum Benefactor of Shanghai Sunrise.
