I see


Violet lips suspended in green bushes, fixed by a grid of hue and framed in metal piping. Anja Conrad’s photographic eye transforms casual sites into densely passionate stories. Her subjects are everyday situations and their objects, things we encounter but habitually seem to overlook. In her compositions, the unimportant becomes a singular experience, the insignificant significant, wishfully evolving into an opus magnum; like curtains that transform a window into a stage, giant weeds that proudly sprout between concrete slabs, or a person, frozen by reflection in a shop window. Peripheral sites become a portrait about the longing and the need to be seen.
