Cultartes Features The Moody Self-Portraits of Anna Marcell

Anna Marcell is a Brooklyn, NY based fine art and self-portrait photographer who captures her own feelings and states of minds in never ending, beautifully glowing series of pictures.

According to the photographer’s website, Anna Marcell “stems from intimacy because it shows how she is feeling at that moment and she desires the photograph to be as real as possible”. In other words, the more private is the atmosphere, the more authentic the photograph becomes. At least for her.

With a record of six exhibitions in the last two years and previously featured in more than two dozens online and offline publications, Anna expanded her photographic views, covering more than self-portraiture, even though every series is virtually charged with the same melancholic, moody climate.

She approaches subjects such as the past, the lost love, the hospitable nature and its repercussions on human conscious, in a static, virtually dead manner. Anna Marcell’s unique landscape series, for instance, represent nothing but an identical replica of her inner thought, just on a larger scale. Her self-conscious nudes gives me the feeling of an after-storm kind of silence, the resignation after a fight that’s been lost long ago.

The artist’s vision, combined with a particular taste for ambient and an original technique, results in an entire misty, perpetual late-morning environmental condition. Or, even better said, “a diary of a life in a visual sense of who she is as an artist”.
