My name is Ricky Kluge. (KLOO-gee)



I'm an internationally published photographer based in Chicago USA, specializing in contemporary portraiture.


I'm from a small tourist town in Southeastern Wisconsin where I grew up around blue collar, hard-working individuals.


I crashed a go-kart when I was 9 and needed fourteen stitches in my face.


I started making websites and practicing graphic design at 12 years old.


In my spare time, I produce strange electronic music.




I am obsessed with the future, the new.  The tools that help advance the different facets of life, cultures, and the world.
