Caroline Bittner graduated from the Gobelins school of images with a diploma in Photography. For five years, she worked as a freelance photo editor. As such, she mostly did telework. It allowed her to travel first to Ireland, then Korea, where she plans on opening her own art studio. Before she even started taking pictures, she already used to draw, which has always impacted her works in photography. When she shoots with a camera, she is in a contemplative state that is closer to a painter’s approach that to the immediacy of a photographer’s work.
Rather than showing what we see, I am in search for what we don’t see. I look for the invisible in what is visible. My photographs are not meant to be a showcase for reality. They open to the one who looks new spaces of imagination. Is this an ice floe seen from the sky, a cloud or smoke? Or maybe some dream I had where the waves broke tirelessly, where I found myself on the verge of infinity. Perhaps did I dream then that I dived across the horizon and discovered spiritual wholeness? I recreated, reinterpreted with my own hands elements of nature – the unfathomable and miraculous beauty that God created. Faced with the impetuousity and the tumult of the waves, I took my photos silently and slowly. With spaces out of time, I invite the viewer to introspect and contemplate. Everywhere I go, I try to recreate mental images of the real. I try to capture those places, those moments when the border between my mind and reality no longer exists.
