anna thiele is a Berlin-based photographer. As a master student, she studied from 2010 to 2011 with Professor Arno Fischer at the renowned Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie. Since 2008, her work has been regularly shown in solo and group exhibitions and she has been rewarded in international competitions. Her photographs are part of the collection of the Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt am Main, the Artothek of the Kommunale Galerie Berlin as well as in private collections.
Urban transformation is a one focus of her artistic photo projects, in which she creates a special view of the interrelationships space–human, human–space. Often over many years, she explores sites where urban and social visions find their expression. In 2020, her first book 'tempelhof. metamorphosis' was published by DISTANZ and was awarded the German Photobook Prize in silver.
In recent years, anna thiele has increasingly turned to freer, associative projects in which she transforms very diverse motifs from everyday contexts into her very own poetic spaces and narratives. In doing so, she deals primarily with existential themes such as the fragility of life or the isolation. There are connecting elements in all her projects: they ultimately deal with human existence and share a common graphic and poetic signature.
