Donata Wenders

The Couple, Tel Aviv, Israël, 2000

Donata Wenders, a photographer that hails from Berlin, takes her inspiration from the masters: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz and Peter Lidbergh, her contemporary.> Read more

Her first series, Islands of Silence (1995-2006), is composed of portraits of anonymous people alongside those of famous movie, dance and fashion stars. By keeping true to the atmosphere of the setting and using ambient light, she succeeds in gently capturing instants in the lives of each of her subjects. Islands of Silence was published by Prestel in 2006.

An ardent black and white enthusiast, she completed In the Snow in 2012, a minimalist series shot in the German countryside. In the Snow takes us into an immaculate landscape in which silhouettes seem to be floating in a closed and melancholic realm.

Alongside her photographic projects, she has also pursued a film career. In collaboration with her husband, Wim Wenders, she released Pina, the Film and the Dancers (Schirmer-Mosel) in 2012.
