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 is currently based in Nashville and travels regionally and throughout the US on assignment for magazines, newspapers, manufacturing, industrial, non-profit, and corporate clients. Her work has been featured by Brigitte, Chicago Tribune Magazine, CNN, Consumer Reports, CVS, Financial Times, H&R Block, Inc. Magazine, Glamour UK, National Parks Magazine, NPR, Sierra Magazine, Smithsonian, This Old House, TLC, The Wall Street Journal, Whisky Advocate, and Wine Spectator.
