Constanze Flamme is an independent documentary photographer based in Berlin and feels home on the road and in motion. Interested in the poetic friction of subliminal undertones she uses an essayistic approach to encircle topics on socio-economical, environmental and cultural aspects of society. Her work explores the space between the factual and the metaphorical, the mundane and the political and meanders between documentary framework and pictorial condensation. She studied Visual Communication at FH Potsdam and Photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and received grants by the Akademie der Künste, Berlin and VG Bildkunst, Bonn.

Constanze is available for assignments and workshops worldwide. She loves to involve herself in long term projects, but finds also excitement in shorter timeframes and the necessity to be sharpminded, quick and communicative in a team. Teaching, mediation via photography and impact on social skills of young pupils through photography is part of her work with imagery.

Since she grew up at the coast and is attracted by the sea and on the contrary by the grandeur of the mountains - comissions in these directions are very welcome! But also in between those contrasts, in cityscapes and their different environments, for private and business portraits, music and theater. 

Her work has been exhibited in Berlin and internationally.
