Anna is a Swedish born restless globetrotter. A big part of her life was spent living abroad, in the US, Brazil, South Africa, Tanzania, Chile and Portugal. During those years there was no big interest for photography and the only pictures from that time are of safaris, beaches, friends and family.
The first contact with street photography was at an exhibition by the Street Collective in Borås. The pictures were fascinating; moments from life, filled of colors, chaos, people, joy and seriousness. The same year, 2016, she back-packed in SE Asia with a newly bought compact camera. The first careful attempts on street photography were made, mixed with temples, beaches and markets.
Two years later she got her mirror-less camera which is the one she uses today.
She still struggles with lifting the camera, getting the settings right, finding her own style and photografic philosohy.
In the meanwhile, she tries to enjoy every moment.
The lecture “It is all about the moments” deals with her development as a street photographer and travels to a number of exciting cities in Europe, the USA and Cuba. Anna is totally fearless as a street photographer and she will take us into dark alleys and neighborhoods that most of us avoid. Not least in London. Her camera has made her open up sides of herself that she had no idea existed.

The lecture will be held in English.
