Caroline Heinecke is a photographer who lives and works in Berlin. She studied photography at the Ostkreuzschule Berlin and communication design at the University of Applied Sciences in Dessau. Her passion is transforming untold stories into images and finding unusual compositions that make objects seem almost ethereal and whimsical. Undiscovered qualities in ordinary things, she brings to life in her stillness and manages to construct visually exciting images from ordinary things. The patient objects often take the role of supporting actors until she lets them see through her eyes. The reality reflected in her photographs appears slightly removed, in a sense centered and alive in its motionlessness.
