Caroline Fink collects moments, experiences, emotions and topics to transform them into films, photgraphs and classic reportages. Being a passionate alpinist, the focus of her work lies on the Alps, the mountains of the world, people connected to the mountains and places where we experience nature at its purest. Discovering for herself, fully immersing, wondering, questioning and looking at the world with the eyes of a child are the most important tools of her work, always aiming at sharing with others what touches herself. As she firmly believes that what moves oneself has the power to inspire others.

In photography she works in the field of the classic reportage and alpine photography as well as fine art projects; furthermore she is the director of studies in photography and digital storytelling at MAZ in Lucerne and teaches as a Leica Referent at the Leica Academy of Switzerland; when making films she is specialized in directing and camera. After completing a master’s degree in sociology many years back, she remains highly interested in sociocultural topics and enjoys critically questioning social realities. Also languages have been an important part of her life since she was born in the bilingual town of Biel/Bienne: Next to her native language German/Swiss German she is fluent in French, Spanish, Italian and English and has some written and spoken skills in Farsi. She lives in the centre of Zurich but spends many days a year outdoors, mostly in the Alps.

    I really enjoyed this interview. And her images are fantastic. Thanks for doing these. This episode in particular, along with a recent backpack trip to the Sierra, have inspired me to get out into the mountains more with my camera. Gotta get something lighter than the one I have though, and not as expensive as a Leica! 😉
