Melanie Haberkorn is a graduate of the Photo Academy Cologne. After working as a criminal defense attorney and with her experience as a mother of two, she decided to study photography in 2013. From the very beginning, her interest was primarily focused on the artistic application of the medium and working with people. To this day, these aspects are combined both in her detail-loving productions and in her - bizarre to surreal - image manipulations.


Melanie Haberkorn's works have been awarded prizes in international competitions and published in professional journals. For her book "Alternative Film Stills" she received the German Photo Book Award in bronze in 2019.


Melanie Haberkorn lives and works as a freelance artist in Cologne. Her works can be viewed and purchased as FineArt-Prints in her studio.
