Pop Culture meets gender sensitivity & inclusive environment for artists & people & brands

working digital & analog

For Katja Ruge, photographer, DJ and music producer, portraiture and pop are inseparable.

To study her intense photographs is to discover the inner core of the person portrayed, down to their hidden character traits. It is a skill based on craftsmanship: She learnt her profession from the bottom up at graphic/design school and as a photo lab technician, while also working as a photo assistant, music promoter and art director, before becoming a full-time freelance photographer in 2000.

When you work with Katja Ruge, you get to know a very empathetic, yet deeply professional person. „I immediately establish a relationship with the other person“. As a photographer, she is an equal accomplice who listens very carefully and knows immediately whether the person in front of her needs an energy kick or a kind word. She has created iconic portraits of hundreds of artists with a clear brief and warm motivation, a sensitive power of observation and an intuitive sense of composition.

Katja Ruge now passes on her combined expertise in music and photography as a lecturer and mentor. It is very important to her to create a distinctive and bold imagery. Always on the cutting edge without following trends. In photography, as in music, Katja Ruge never adheres strictly to a form or genre, but adapts to the given situation.

Her love of music finds further expression as a DJ. Her intense sets take place in clubs or at events. Her sound cosmos is strongly influenced by the 80s, always with an eye on current tracks.

Together with Frank Husemann they are the duo „Can Love Be Synth“, producing complete analogue sounds in the Synthesizer Studio Hamburg and have various remixes and own releases on labels such as Bordello A Parigi, Mute Records, Ombra Int. and TAU.
