Andreas H. Bitesnich was born in 1964 in Vienna and started to take photographs in 1988.

Deeper Shades

He exhibited his works for the first time in 1994. Shows in Austria, Germany, France, USA, Portugal, and other countries soon to be followed. His first book Nudes, published by Edition Stemmle in 1998, won the Kodak Photography Book Award in the same year. In 2001 Bitesnich began his long term co-operation with the prestigious publishing house teNeues, producing eight books for the publisher so far: Woman (2001), Travel (2001), Nudes (2001), On Form (2003), Polanude (2006), More Nudes (2007), Erotic (2010) and India (2011). The book Deeper Shades–New York was published in a limited edition of 960 copies in 2011 by Room5Books. Bitesnich’s latest publication – “Akt auf Marke” (Ferrytells Verlag) was released at the beginning of 2012, together with an exclusive set of postage stamps with his photographs.
