Carolina Dutca is a documentary photographer and artist specializing in long-term projects on human rights. Her work involves conceptual and street photography, photojournalism, video and installation.

Born and raised in the breakaway republic of Transnistria (Moldova), many of Dutca's artworks are deeply personal - reflecting on her background and drawing on the experiences of herself and her subjects with discrimination, domestic violence, xenophobia, feminism, and social and cultural stereotypes.

Two major photojournalism projects from within Transnitria have been completed recently - NO SILENCE raised the issue of LGBTQ+ discrimination and The Places of Violence investigated domestic violence. Ongoing projects located in Russia, Moldova and Transnistria include Fem#In postmedia project and installation The Point of no Return.

"Who believes today that war can be abolished? No one, not even pacifists." - Susan Sontag

Another thing, it is the war's caliber and the number of victims. In
her projects, Dutca wants to reduce the number of victims and make society more tolerant. This is the inspiration for social projects and activism through art.
