BioUlli Richter was born in a small East German village on the Czech border. In his early years as a child he was widely travelled accompanying his parents to most countries in Eastern Europe. This fostered his interest in photography, in particular travel photography which led him to develop a broad portfolio of architectural work.
A keen learner and ambitious connoisseur of life, Ulli sought a freer form of artistic expression. With the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 came fundamental changes in his personal life. Having been confined by the restraints of a communist society, he was now free to leave for foreign shores and look for new challenges in the field of photography.
Ulli moved to London in 1996 and today works as a commercial lifestyle and advertising photographer in both London and Berlin. Yet his much loved artistic work encompasses the world of gay subculture. He relishes the privilege to be one of the leading documentarians on the international gay BDSM fetish play scene.
Ulli’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions and is part of various private collections around the world. Whether it’s commercial or kink, Ulli continues to apply the highest standard of traditional photographic skill to produce outstanding images with a darker edge.
