Anja Niemi is one of the most compelling contemporary artists of our times. Using the medium of photography, she creates self-portraiture pieces and insists on working absolutely alone.
Born in Norway in 1976, Anja studied at the London College of Printing and Parsons School of Design in New York. Her highly stylised images possess a freakish quality to them and often display contrasting emotions such as tragedy and humour.
Niemi’s photos carry a loose narrative that leave room for subjective interpretation on the complex relationships we have with ourselves. She works hard at being photographer, model, stylist and post-production editor all in one.
