Brief Summary
Petra Arnolds work does inhabit primarily classical photographic genres - portraits and reportage - yet the lines between documentation and art are blurred. Alongside portraits of musicians, interesting and borderline characters, the artist also focuses on street photography.
Professional Experience
born 1966 in Heidelberg, is active in Germany and foreign countries.

Petra’s portfolio includes both artistic work and commercial productions.
Her many trips to San Francisco and New Orleans have produced images that reflect the impartial view of the photographer as authentic moments. These encounters and personalities are compelling. There is also often evidence of her special interest in marginal social groups.
