Kristina Krug is a photojournalist that hails from Chicago. She delivers honest portraits and relatable narratives filled with empathy, humor, and warmth. Her work celebrates human dignity, courage, hope; her curiosity about people, how they think, and what motivates them. She is often drawn to the offbeat and unexpected moments found in everyday life, and she shoots editorial, commercial, and personal projects with the same approach.
With an early proclivity for the visual and language arts, Kristina went on to receive a BFA; and for a decade built a successful career in Chicago as a freelance art director. She cultivated her interests in art film, cinematography, surrealism, and Jungian psychology, which subsequently led her to a career in photography.
Kristina travels throughout the US and Europe on assignment for magazines, newspapers, manufacturing, industrial, non-profit, and corporate clients. Her work has been featured by Brigitte, Chicago Tribune Magazine, CNN, Condé Nast, Consumer Reports, EatingWell, Financial Times, H&R Block, Inc. Magazine, Glamour UK, National Parks Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, NPR, Sierra Magazine, Smithsonian, TLC, This Old House, The Wall Street Journal, Whisky Advocate, Wild Turkey Distillery, and Wine Spectator.
