Growing up in an East German environment characterised by drab greys and darkness, Dorit developed a deep affinity for light. Light, she realised early on, is a central factor in the beauty of photographs, and she is a master at using it in her photographs in a variety of sometimes unconventional ways.

During her photo shoots, she places special emphasis on a happy atmosphere and conveys a feeling of security to the children with a childlike lightness. In doing so, she always succeeds in capturing these precious moments and capturing the true expressions of emotion that deserve to be preserved for eternity. Her very own, unmistakable style in dealing with light enables her to create fascinating photographs of unparalleled beauty.
