ANJA CONRAD

Anja Conrad (1971*) lives and works in Oberursel, Germany. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her MFA in Photography and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she studied under Joel Sternfeld. Her recent book of photographs “Everything is always so perfect when you are in it” was published by Kehrer Verlag in 2019.

Anja Conrad is an active reframer of her surroundings in search of understanding the parameters of everyday life. By walking through the streets with her medium format camera, she captures the markers of the human in vivid color, in the tradition of documentary-style photography. Like her large scale photographs of a reflection in a storefront window showing a silhouette with a robotic heart, or the broken light-box-sign exposing its interior workings, these are documents of reality transformed. What happens when something like that is so seriously captured, fixed as a portrait, and what does it become in that scale? Anja’s slices of life are like lyrical notes of resistance which reclaim our autonomy, our right to self-creation, and the authentic intimacy of our lives.
