Anja Christine Roß lives and works in Berlin, Germany


"My inspiration comes from the joy of everyday forms in design and nature. My images are the results of the joy of natural colors as well as intuitive action associated with forgetting and remembering. It is rather intuitive finding with the camera. I am finding pictures with the camera. Therefore emotion always plays a role. Romantic painting of the 18th century to the 19th century and the sky in Scotland influence me in my photography work. The Italian Baroque, which I have vaguely tracked by visits to Rome, influenced me in my video works. I capture emotions with my artwork. These are anchored in the collective as well as individual mind and thinking. A lack of pictures combined with the lack of discussions about pictures let me move to art."

(Anja Christine Roß)
