Work biography
Initially, he was interested in travel photography; but an assignment by Associated Press to cover the Yugoslavian War drove him to war genre. He saw it as an opportunity to travel and to check his possible reactions in extreme situations, so he seized it: his career on conflict zones had started.
Thielker´s most famous work is a photograph of Rwandan refugees carry water back to a camp in Tanzania that won him a Pulitzer Prize in 1995. At that time, he reported the Hutus and Tutsis overwhelming civil war together with Jaqueline Artz, Javier Bauluz and Jean-Marc Bouju.
His works have been exhibited in various European countries, in Mexico and in Nigeria and he has also conducted workshops for the Goethe Institute.
Thielker worked for the Associated Press from 1990 to 1996 and as a freelance photographer from Berlin since 1997.
