Photography is for Anita (Amsterdam, 1968) a language; a means of communication to reach what really matters; contact with others. Thereby she is very conscious of space. The spacious environment but more importantly, the space that others need. To feel at ease, to be themselves. She herself likes to get that space as well. Thus mutual understanding and respect can come into being to create meaningful images.
In general, she does not want to conform and rather thinks about content than visibility. She likes images in which she can find the emotions of her surroundings. Sharpness and a correct lighting is often, but not always important to her. By playing with those, you sometimes get an unexpected image. Furthermore she likes creative perspectives and sometimes an odd sense of humor.
When she graduated, Anita belonged to the best of her year. Her work is regularly published in magazines such as HVT Magazine, Noord-Hollands Dagblad, Gooi- & Eemlander, IJmuider Courant, Leidsch Dagblad, Haarlems Dagblad, Dier-En-Arts magazine et al.
She exhibited her work during the yearly Fotovakschool Graduation Show in Amsterdam, in Arthall ABW&W in Almere and in her own gallery.
