David Kronig was born in Erith, Kent as David William Newton King. He spent his childhood living in the UK, after which he studied in St Gallen, Zurich and Lausanne, Switzerland. During the Second World War he settled in Geneva, where he became acquainted with Alberto Giacometti. After the war and the death of his father he returned to the UK and changed his name to David Christian Kronig, reverting to the original family name which had been Anglicised during WW1. From 1953 to1964 he worked for various publishers in Geneva and London, among them Albert Skira. He did a number of portraits and reportages about notable figures from the art world, among them Alberto Giocometti and Marc Chagall. Wanting 'to make those still images move', he joined the BBC art features department in 1965. In the 1980s Kronig moved from London to Sussex, where he died in 1993.
