Zach Krahmer, b. 1991, began photographing in 2000 when his mother shared her Pentax Spotmatic. Following the advice of a friend, he studied anything besides photography, but never stopped making pictures. For the past decade he has worked with video, photography and alternative processes to explore new ways of engaging across divisions in society and clarifying complex global trends by focusing on solutions.
He received a degree in International Development from George Washington University in 2013, specializing in decolonization politics of Africa. He recently completed an Executive Masters degree in International Relations with a specialization in Conflict Resolution from the top public affairs school in the US, serving as student speaker for convocation. Zach regularly lectures and teaches about photography, civil participation and global issues. In his free time, Zach completes thru hikes, climbs ice, and cooks for friends and family.
