Ailine Liefeld lives and works as a freelance photographer in Berlin. She is often booked for her natural style putting and capturing people in sceneries with available light and room for spontaneous moments. Therefor she keeps her set as reduced as possible and tells her models to rather keep moving than to pose and freeze. Using 35mm and medium format camera systems that are both, light and fast, it gives her the freedom to create these moments and push the button exactly when it happens.

If she isn’t working, she loves to cook and travel.

In 2009 she was asked to join Freunde von Freunden, an online magazine focusing on people and interior, starting as their first and then, only photographer. She continued to be so for about a year until other photograhers joined as the project was growing rapidly. Almost 100 stories later, this project influenced her work as much as she influenced the project with her style of photography. Aiming for new adventures, she left in 2012, returning every once in a while for a story worth telling.
