Nadine Ethner, an artist and photographer based in Berlin, studied at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle, Germany and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy. After finishing her M.A. in Germany she spent seven years in Rome, where she collaborated with international artists on various interactive projects. Travel in Europe, India, Japan, North Africa and Turkey during the same period exerted a strong, lasting influence on her visual language.
In 2007 she moved to Berlin, where she and other international artists and photographers co-founded the exhibition space exp12/exposure twelve in 2010. Collaborations with other artists, designers and cultural institutions as well as with various agencies, galleries, online shops and platform providers in eCommerce followed.
In 2016 she founded VTph Visual Thoughts – an online magazine and platform from which she presents international artistic positions in photography and discusses the following essential question: What do they do to us, these photographs that describe, narrate and interpret time and our world with such great complexity?
In 2021 she founded VTph editions, an online gallery and online shop with a fine selection of contemporary fine art photography. VTph editions presents the artwork of upcoming and renowned artists for a new generation of collectors, art lovers and the interested audience.
