Arina Dähnick, photo artist of fine art and architecture, lives and works in Berlin.
Arina had her first professional photo exhibition at the age of 17. With her series Perfect Life, Contemporary Architecture Barcelona and The MIES-Project she exhibited in Germany and abroad and solidly establishing her place in the international photo scene.
With the legendary Leica M rangefinder camera - an unusual choice for architectural photography - Arina follows her photographic intuition, choosing viewing angle and distance, the different light at various times of day and year, adjusting aperture, exposure, and focusing manually. Nothing is added to the result, the photographer consistently refrains from image manipulation.
