WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Carolin Thiergart was born in Berlin, Germany in 1999.
At the age of 14, she got her first camera and began taking pictures of nature, still life and portraits. In 2019 she combined her two passions, dance and photography and started photographing dancers and circus artists.
With over a decade of dance experience herself, she knows the proper technique, aesthetics and daily life of a ballet dancer. Her personal experience enables her to professionally capture dance movements with artistic and photographic quality.
Carolin attaches great importance to a pleasant and relaxed photo shooting atmosphere. The health of the dancer is her top priority, which is why she strives to include the fundamentals of a successful shoot: fun, regular breaks and mutual feedback.
Her photography is based on creating with other artists, whose performance and individual style she admires and appreciates very much.

"Portraits with a story to tell. Berlin-based photographer Carolin Thiergart takes composition to a new level with her visual storytelling."

“The shooting with Caro was super pleasant and relaxed. Very open-minded photographer, with whom you can feel super comfortable and also count on great pictures. Always a pleasure!”
— Nina Rausch, Trapeze Artist
"The work of Carolin combines architectural photography with dance photography in a special artistic way. Not only the motive of the dancer is in the foreground but the whole composition of the picture leaves a lasting impression - the dancer rather seems to be a part of the photographic story, embodying various emotions and triggering them while watching. Sometimes it is passion, sometimes the power and strength, and sometimes the calm that emanates from the photograph. Her work inspires me and the style she has in mind complements my own photography when working with her, which makes creating with her very pleasant. Not only do I find her photography worthy of support, but I would like to thank her once again for the art and photography projects we have done together so far and for her support."
