Hugh Kretschmer’s Surrealist Photography

Working within the realms of both art and commerce, Hugh Kretschmer is a Los Angeles-native photographer whose work is influenced by the artistic background of his family. His 22-year career is marked by both editorial and advertising imagery, with an endearing use of metaphor and hand crafted, trick-the-eye elements. The artist cites “amalgamation of different influences from many years of absorbing” as inspiration. Dark, whimsical, and innovative all at once, the artist sees his vision come to life after meticulous set design, styling, lighting, shooting, and post production.
