Stuttgart born, Berlin bred, Paris educated and of dual nationality, Assuntas art is just as diverse as her road to Artisdom has been. Once determined to become a painter, her first artistic steps are still very much apparent in all her works. Assunta redefines the means of “creating a photograph”, using digital and analogue techniques to fuse the romanticism of painting and the realism of photography. She manipulates light sources to create dreamlike effects, continually exploring new techniques to push her work further. Every picture is deeply personal and has its own story. Especially her documentations of private festivities as well as her filmed interviews and documentations about the rich life stories of World War II survivors are deeply appreciated for Assuntas emotional, yet still professional approach and especially her discretion.
