Graphic Design & Visual Communication
Kalinka Gieseler graduated in fine art photography at the Academy of Visual Art Leipzig. Since graduating in 2013, she has been working as an artistic photographer: kalinka-gieseler.de. In her work, she deals with the seductive power of the image and the role of its staging. She treats photography as a physical material that is fundamentally changeable in its form and use and that constantly reconstitutes itself in the respective space and context. Her work has been exhibited internationally and has received multiple awards and grants; among other things, she was a scholarship holder of the Goethe Institute Beijing and a DAAD Postgraduate Scholarship in Los Angeles. Furthermore, she has been working as part of the photographer duo Plzzo since 2017 as a still life photographer for international magazines and brands. Kalinka Gieseler lives and works in Berlin.
