Kristyna Archer

Who is Kristyna?

Kristyna Archer is an award-winning advertising photographer and director with a knack for telling stories through her images. Her body of work is conceptual and compelling, highlighting offbeat moments with a nod to the idiosyncratic human condition.  She spent her formative years chronicling  Detroit with a Pentax K1000 around her neck and soon fell in love with the magic of the darkroom processes.  She studied photography at Columbia College and followed up with a decade of work in Chicago.  Now she splits time between LA and NYC, eats 3 cups of carrots a day to nurture her best asset (keen vision), and can be found befriending any cat that crosses her path.  Her photographic accolades include awards from the Lucie International Photography Awards, Communication Arts Design Annual, and the APA awards.  Her clients range from Leo Burnett and Ogilvy to The New York Times and VICE.  She also recently created a podcast about the intersection of art & commerce with trailblazers in today’s creative landscape, called MergeLeft.
