I have bought a new Macbook and when I go to About This Mac -> Storage I see: 1.11 GB Audio and 750 MB of Photos.. But I have not copied any Audio or Photos to this laptop.
How can I find where these files are? For example in Windows there was this app: WinDirStat https://windirstat.info/ Anything like this for Mac?

How about Daisy Disk? It's a fantastically fluid and feature filled application for the cause.
However, I think the majority of the space taken up by photos are operating system/application assets

If you do not want to install third party software (and deal with side effects) you can use the Terminal located in your utility folder.
mdfind .mp3 to find mp3 files
repeat for mp4, jpeg, PNG and so on....
