Birthe Piontek is a fine art photographer based in Vancouver BC, Canada.
Originally from Germany, she moved to Canada in 2005 after receiving her MFA from the University of Essen in Communication Design and Photography.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, in both solo and group shows, and is featured in many private and public collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and the Museum of Applied Arts in Gera, Germany.
Birthe describes her photography as an exploration of the individual. She is interested in the process of individuation. How do people find their own identity? What shapes them, how are they influenced by the world around them?
