My name is Aline Pape, and I was born in NRW, Germany in 1997. My passion lies in photography and design concepts. As a non-binary designer, I have been exploring how photography can create space for self-determination and redefine gender for several years. I'm highly interested in political and sociological discourses, and my work reflects my engagement in these fields. I believe that photography has a significant role in the movement for equality, and my aim is to challenge, expand and diversify our collective idea of gender roles and heteronormativity.

In 2022 I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design at the University of applied sience Aachen. Currently, I'm a student assistant in the photography department at the FH, as well as working as a freelance photographer, designer and artist. I have participated in various exhibitions and collaborations.

As a designer, I specialize in creating innovative concepts for photography and design projects. Whether you're looking to revamp your branding or create stunning visual content, I'm open to any creative challenge. Don't hesitate to send me an email to discuss your project ideas further. I'm excited to hear from you!
