Anna Hurtig

A look at…  Anna Hurtig, born in 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden.

“The thing that appeals to me the most about photography is that it gives me a possibility to depict the world exactly as it looks and a way to create an imaginary one. A place where I have the total control of both the scene and the execution.

As a child I had the most imaginative dreams and I remember waking up in the morning filled with new energy regardless of whether they were good dreams or nightmares. As I grew older the dreams slowly faded away and was replaced by anxiety and bewildered feelings. In search of a way to process the confused thoughts from the past and to heal as an adult, photography has given me the opportunity to deal with my innermost hopes and fears and a way to express what I find hard to put into words. A chance to create new dreams and regain the vital energy and spark that unfortunately became the inevitable sacrifice of growing up.”  Anna Hurtig
