Miss Aniela was born in Leeds, 1986, and studied BA English & Media at University of Sussex. Her career as an artist began whilst still at University, and shortly following, was sought to speak in the US for Microsoft and offered solo shows in London and Madrid. She is now a fine-art and commercial photographer based in London.
Miss Aniela’s work has been exhibited internationally in Europe and the US, with representation in Madrid, LA and San Diego, and six solo exhibitions to date. Her work has been featured in numerous media worldwide, including NY Arts, El Pais, ALARM Chicago, Vogue Italia, BBC, and American Photo. She is the author of two photography books, Self-Portrait Photography and Creative Portrait Photography (both Ilex/Pixiq, worldwide.)
As well as being active commercially she is currently working on her fine-art series ‘Surreal Fashion’ and environment-based series ‘Ecology’. She has also self-branded her own workshop-style event that emphasises autonomous photographic creativity, the Fashion Shoot Experience, in London, LA and New York.
“Photography is always my ‘living’ whether I am working on personal or commercial work, because it is creating that keeps me feeling alive. I pour my mind into everything I create, and always aim to push the envelope with consistently compelling imagery with the highest production value I can make possible. In my personal work I want to stir people to question, and to think intelligibly of their own accord about the problems, the beauty – and the conflict between them – in the world as we know it.”
