Born in 1975, Klaus Enrique grew up in Mexico City. He studied genetics at the University of Nottingham, England, and received an MBA from Columbia Business School in the City of New York. Most of his professional career was spent as a freelance IT consultant before Enrique turned to photography, which he studied at Parsons and at the School of Visual Arts. Enrique began to receive worldwide attention in 2007 when his portrait of “Mother & Daughter” was short-listed for the Photographic Portrait Prize at London’s National Portrait Gallery. He is famously known for his contemporary still lifes in the manner of Arcimboldo. Enrique had his first solo exhibition in 2008 and currently lives in New York City.
