Founded by award-winning Photographer Eric Berger in 1984, the LIK Academy for Photography and Design got its final Shape and Organisation with its current Director Nadja Gusenbauer.

The fascination for photography infected the native Ukrainian at a young age. The love for black and white photography and the development in her own laboratory were put in her cradle in a manner of speaking. After years as an engineer in the textile industry, Nadja Gusenbauer took the examination for the degree of Master in Photography in Austria found her vocation in photography. She manages the LIK Academy for Photo and Design in Vienna since 2011.
