Always in character

Staging, performing and photographing each scene, Norwegian artist Anja Niemi develops complex, nuanced narratives through evocative costume and elaborate styling. She works alone and always in character. Her work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide including her first retrospective museum show this year at Fotografiska in Stockholm, and her new show opening at Galerie XII in Los Angeles 4 May. She has published four books including her new book In Character published by Thames & Hudson which is out now.

 

The way Niemi works with storytelling through photography is truly mesmerizing and we are excited to show a selection from her projects.
