On the other side of my desk is Nina Dörner, who dabbles modestly in the world of photography in her free time. Also during working hours you can thank her for most of the images you see on our various Circus social media outlets.
Nina’s passion for photography stems from when she was a small girl and she was gifted a bad film camera by her parents. Since then she has worked with various film cameras before looking towards digital solutions with a Lumix camera, a Nikon D40, and her iPhone 5S. She has taken two photography courses, one with Slow Travel Berlin and the other with Enter Studio in the Kulturbrauerei, but mostly her approach to photography is intuitive, capturing moments and situations rather than constructing them.
Her favourite place to see photography exhibitions is the C/O Gallery and she follows the work of some of the greats such as Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn, Italy-based Massimo Vitali, and cityscape/landscape Italian photographer Luca Campigotto. Nina recently won one of Fotostrasse’s monthly themed competition on Dark & Light with the above photo, and has also been published in the Berlin voucher book, Luups (see below).
For some of her older photos, check out her blog at Neunzehn77 for all her unedited photographs, and below is a selection of some of her new photos mostly taken with her iPhone. To stay up to date, follow Nina on Instagram.
