Grande Dame… breathtaking, timeless, elegant.
Fashion and lifestyle mark the work of Denmark born photographer Winnie Denker for about 20 years. Then comes January 1st, 1986: for the first time Paris’ Eiffel Tower shines under the lights. And for the first time Winnie Denker captures this moment with the help of her plate-back camera… the beginning of an everlasting love story. To date the architectural icon belongs to Denker’s favorite themes.
Since this day, the Grande Dame of photography has dedicated her creativity to the world’s cultural sites, she works internationally on behalf of such renowned institutions like the UNESCO. She’s one of the world’s few photographers to shoot in the 8 x 10 format which allows for wide angles, extreme definition and as a consequence enables oversized prints. By catching rare colors and shades large-scale she offers the observer the unique experience of the most beautiful and totally unknown perspective.

New York, Peking, Paris, St. Petersburg… her work has contributed considerably to the prestige and the reputation of the Hermitage Museum.
