Janine Graubaum is a photographer and director in the areas of transportation, people, lifestyle, and documentary. She lives and works in Berlin. Born 1984 in the GDR and raised in a car-loving family with Trabant workshops and dealerships, the topic of transportation has been around her all her life.
As a child, Janine was fascinated by the heavy tools and the vehicles. The rough, metallic and atmospheric feeling in the East made a lasting impression on her well into adulthood. Which is why she traveled through Eastern Europe again and again and has dedicated her first photo book entitled ‘KOSMOS TRAIN’ to these old Eastern-European trains and their passengers, and has received multiple awards for doing so.
Career-wise, Janine is at home in two worlds : One with her personal documentary photos and their unvarnished take on reality. The other with the staged imagery of her commercial work. Two entirely different approaches which she keeps apart from one another while still constantly using their synergy as a source of insight.
More photos and films by Janine are available at www.claudiabitzer.de. Claudia and Toralf look forward to your inquiries.
