Kathrin Günter studied at the University for applied Sciences in Hamburg focussing mainly on photography. In 2000 she won the BFF Award for one of the best photographic diploma of german universities. After long stays in italy, spain and england she moved back to germany in 2006 and has been living in Berlin ever since.
She has been extensively exploring and working with gossip, star behaviour, the phenomenon of paparazzi photography and the therewith inseparable self-staging. Her most recent researches and rather playful investigations focus on thought-o-graphic experiments, photo chemical processes and other invisible phenomena and unresolved mysteries in photography of the late ninteenth and early twentieth century.
She exhibited worldwide and her work is part of several public and private collections. In 2013 she received the International Teletext Art Award.
