Born to an Anglo-Irish mother and a Sudeten-German father in Wiesbaden (DE), Aindreas Scholz grew up with Erzählungen (German: stories) in a bilingual family home. Oral stories of war atrocities, miraculous escapes and personal hardships were often improvised and embellished by his grandparents. Scholz went on to study photography in Dublin (IE), developing a keen interest in visual narratives. After working for a number of years as a photolab assistant, Scholz moved to the United Kingdom in pursuit of further studies. Working in three dimensions, his studies question witness accounts, narrative point of view and characters leading to souvenir sculptures.
