German Stylist Dietlind Wolf

January 9, 2012

I am so excited to share one of my very favorite stylists with you today… Her name is Dietlind Wolf and she lives in Hamburg, Germany and works as a props stylist and maker of pretty porcelain things to adorn yourself with (like these).

Her collections and arrangements are simply stunning, fresh and very forward. Dietlind possesses an amazing eye and you can sense her connection to the things that she uses to compose a visual story because everything from the materials used to the composition and overall vibe seems so deeply personal. I am smitten by her food styling and consider myself a very big fan and feel she is one of Germany’s greatest talents. Here are some breathtaking views from her portfolio — pay close attention to the details…

Dietlind does a lot of work for Brigitte, Essen und Trinken and Living At Home magazines, some of Germany’s top lifestyle, food and home publications, which is how I first discovered this talented lady. I would LOVE to see her style a cookbook, she could do such an amazing job especially if she were given loads of creative freedom. I’d love to work with Dietlind someday, even just to observe her, it is women like her who inspire me so, so much… They are not copycats but trendsetters. I love and admire this SO MUCH.

Psst: Isn’t her jewelry lovely?

    Inspiring, artistic, raw and emotional! These images are gorgeous! I’ve been a designer for many years and I have known for nearly as long that styling is its own art and own design discipline. I respect a good stylist’s work very much…it makes the objects sing.

    This is one of my favorite types of food styling; playful but still delicious. I fully support playing with your food!

    Oh my. This is really quite stunning. There are so many creative individuals with so many resources that it’s hard to stand out…but this woman has managed to achieve the impossible. Thank you for sharing.

    It was funny, my high school German kicked in when I first looked at this blog and it took me a minute to realize I understood the word without it being in English. Ha! Weird!! (me that is!) Anyway, love her styling and the way she layers 2D and 3D elements in her photos. Brilliant -and humbling! We can all aspire!

    Dietlind is a absolutly lovely stylist, I own a German cookbook styled by her and often I just drool about the photos and totally forget I actually wanted to look up a recipe.
    The book is called “Teatime. 80 Köstlichkeiten für die schönste Stunde des Tages”, there are some of her porcelain designs in there as well. I just love it!
