Caren Dissinger has a sensitive eye for capturing the character of a person and the distinct nature of a place with her camera. Having lived in three continents provided her with sympathetic insight into cultures and the natural world.
As a student, she moved to Berlin, Germany from South America to study photography at the Lette Verein. She then worked as a darkroom technician and studio photographer while living in Italy. Caren moved to the United States and worked in the fashion industry on Miami Beach in the 1990’s. She later traveled throughout the Caribbean, Latin America and the Southern United States photographing an extensive location library for use by film and tourism industries. Caren is fluent in English, German, Spanish and is conversational in Italian.
In 2000 she moved to historic Pennsylvania where she shoots on location and in her studio. She now uses her background and love of horses to merge fashion, portraiture and location to create distinctive portraits of equines and their owners.
Caren's work has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Max, Interior Design and other international publications. Her client list has included: Otto, Spiegel, Island Records, Cine Film Puerto Rico, Bahamas Tourism Board, David D’Imperio Lighting.
