Andreas Fux grew up as a citizen of the GDR in East Berlin. From 1980 to 1982 he was an apprentice electrician and since 1983 he has been working as a self-taught photographer. In 1988 he published his first photographic works in Das Magazin, a monthly issue in East Berlin focusing on culture and lifestyle. For Das Magazin, Fux provided photographic contributions from the East German punk and youth scene. Fux belongs to the scene of Prenzlauerberg photographers who documented the last decade of the GDR, the turnaround and the transition to the FRG with his works, and alongside Sven Marquart, with whom he has been friends since 1984, is its most prominent representative. He also addresses the subject of nudes, physical culture and sexuality in more recent works, for example in the series "At the End of the Night" in which the black background is used and the play with the now selective light seems to shape and fragment the models in a sculptural way.
