Highly regarded for her emotive technique, people and corporate photographer Jurga Graf picked up her first camera as a child in Lithuania. Influenced by the raw approach of famed photographer Antanas Sutkus, her style is clean and minimal yet profoundly expressive. At its core lies a deep fascination with humanity and the fundamental belief that a photographer must truly love a person to capture his or her essence in portrait.
Complementing this personal outlook is a unique career combining both corporate photography and fine art portraiture. Jurga’s corporate approach, much like her portraiture, is intuitive and empathic. She excels in tailoring tones, themes, and aesthetics towards creative, corporate brand identities. In portraiture she takes things deeper, exploring personality and psyche in a more classic, holistic vein. Her underlying philosophy and instincts result in work lauded as genuine, honest, and seemingly effortless.
Previously city-based, Jurga now calls the countryside outside Nuremberg home. In summer 2016, she realized her lifelong dream of buying a rural farmhouse and living closer to nature. When not travelling through Germany and Europe on business, she divides her time between home, creative pursuits, and family.
