Anja Stiegler is a German photographer who has developed over time a personal interpretation of surrealist photography. She manages with her shots to create incredible stories, mysterious scenarios where time seems sparse and inconsistent. The observer is suspended and fascinated by these pictures that take him back in time and in a daydream context. Her photographs appear delicate and beautiful, the dream becomes almost a tangible reality.
One of the masters of the Surrealist photography is Rodney Smith which inspired Anja too much. The American photographer binds his shots to the work of the surrealist painter Rene Magritte, which allows us to find in his images, expertly mixed, a stage research and a unique spontaneity .
His photographs don’t follow trends but want to leave an indelible mark in the memory and in the experience of the viewer, subverting the perception of images, moving it into a dreamlike dimension.
