Kai Schäfer

Born in 1971 - Germany


Kai Schäfer lives and works in Dusseldorf (Germany). At the age of 15, he bought his first camera: the beginning of a great passion.

Kai Schafer has been concentrating on his first big photo-art-project “worldrecords” since 2011. For this photo series, including about 70 pictures up to now, he takes pictures of the great albums of music history, as for example The Clash, Pink Floyd and Kraftwerk, in an oversized format on record players that have become legendary too. The result is a tribute to unforgettable analogues worlds of sound.

In December 2011, one of his pictures has been sold at high prize at Christies Germany, a first great success on the art market… In 2013 “worldrecords” was already part of an solo exhibition in Los Angeles, the
AIPAD artfair in New York, the “Berliner Liste” in Berlin and the “artshow” in Düsseldorf, with a huge success.
