WELCOME!



Hi, I'm André Lichtenberg, an artist / photographer born in Brazil and based in the UK. I live with my family in Brighton on the south coast of England. I have a BSC in Photographic Science and a MA in Photographic Studies.

I have been involved in professional photography for over 25 years. Initially, I worked in advertising, travel and editorial assignments; that was followed by a period of lecturing photography at University of Westminster, London and over the last 10 years I have focused in researching and developing my own art practice.



I'm very thankful and proud of my art journey until now. My photography has been successful in numerous international awards, published in art books, exhibited in galleries, museums, art fairs and is collected internationally. However the artist journey is certainly NOT an easy one.

Like most contemporary artists, I do not have a regular income. My art is self-funded. Most art prizes and awards I receive are unpaid and my income relies mainly on print sales. To make things more stable and to help support my family I used to have part time job as an editor/curator, here in UK, but that position stopped early in 2018. That made me realize how vulnerable an artist can be on his/her own.

I was introduced to Patreon by a photographer friend and decided to give it a go. Here I will be giving archival prints away on a monthly basis and sharing my artistic journey and experiences in exchange for your support. I have many new ambitions projects that I would love to develop, including editing and releasing my archives in a series of several personal photo books.

MONTHLY PRINT GIVE-AWAY

In exchange for your support, I’ll be running a monthly print give-away exclusively for you. Every month one of you will win and receive a highly collectable archival print. The print will be sent in sturdy packages over the post, alongside a thank you note. This will be a great opportunity for you to start an art collection or keep adding special prints to your existing one.

CREATIVE UPDATES

I’ll share regular updates of my current projects and observations with you. I am normally very private in my social media, I often post purely visual content and hardly any text. This will be my special outlet to open up and honestly share what is really going on behind the process and the person. A place were I’ll be evaluating my artist journey and findings. I’ll really appreciate your comments and input.

I WILL CREATE PHOTO BOOKS

Over the last 25 years I have been working in many photographic projects. Some lucky images from those projects have become well known by winning art prizes, but the truth is: the vast majority of those photographs are still unpublished.



I want to use Patreon to start editing and organizing the many cross sections of my archives (moonlight, architecture, rain, landscapes, cities, seascapes, travels... ) into personal art books.

The idea is to create gorgeous collectable books in very small editions that you can treasure. My aim is to create and publish here one new book every 6 months. The first book, MOON, has been released Dec 2018 covering my 20 years journey of photographing under the moonlight. The edition of 20 copies is already SOLD OUT

The more of you get involved, the better the projects and books will be. Any help from you will be extremely appreciated. THANK YOU!
