Tina Ruisinger, *1969 in Germany, works as a photographer, artist and curator.
She studied at the Hamburg School of Photography (HFS), the International Center of Photography (ICP)
in New York and the Zurich University of the Arts (ZhdK).
Since the early 90’s, Ruisinger has been working as an independent photographer in the areas of
Reportage, Portraiture and Dance photography. Her book Faces of Photography featuring 50 Masters of
Photography, was published in 2002 and has received wide international acclaim, and her dance book
Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker/Meg Stuart, featuring two of the world’s most influential choreographers,
was published in 2007. Her most recent book Traces deals with the subject of loss and has been published
in April 2017. She has been awarded numerous prizes and grants, exhibiting in solo and collaborative
shows, in Europe and abroad. She currently lives and works in Zurich and Berlin working both commissioned and on independent projects.
The main emphasis of her work has always been humans: imbedded in their impermanence and
mortality. Her subjects of focus are portraits, personal reportages and documentaries about the
vitality and intensity of life, as well as of age and death. She uses photography, video, sound and text
to strengthen the contents of her intentions.
Besides her independent projects Ruisinger is realizing commissioned work both editorial and commercial.
The cooperation tm.woRK photography was founded in 1998 together with photographer Marc Kollmuss
and has completed various annual reports, image brochures and book illustrations over the last 15 years.
