Moni Kellermann is a self-taught photographer who was based in Hamburg, Germany, during the 1980s and 1990s. Her work specializes in rock music live photography and musician's portraits but also comprises black & white portraits of very diverse people of interest, such as actresses, writers, artists, Buddhist nuns or politicians.
As a regular of the Hamburg music scene, she covered hundreds of live shows from the first show at the Docks to the last show at the iconic Onkel Pö's and documented many first performances in Germany of artists who later would become famous, such as k.d. lang, Suzanne Vega, The Bangles or Chris Isaak. Her portraits are taken on location, with available light, without studio technology or artificial lighting or props.
Starting out with local newspaper Hamburger Morgenpost, she went on to have her work printed in newspapers and music magazines across Germany and abroad.
Her vast archive is available for licensing and publication.
