Born in the south of Germany, Anja moved to Berlin in 1992 to give more space to her artistic freedom. Always fascinated by light and shade she completed her education as a lighting technician. For more than a decade, she works at a collage for performing arts and has already accompanied many artists along the way. The daily work with light, different moods and shadows are also reflected in her photographic works, which she has created since 2007. International forums and art agencies drew their attention to her unique style. A mixture of fantasy worlds and reality, shaped by silhouettes, reflections and mystical moods. This kind of photography quickly became her personal trademark. She received international awards, publications in countless international magazines and exhibitions. As a curator of the international photography page 1x.com, they appreciate her many years of experience in fine art photography. Incidentally she runs a successful business and sells her art worldwide.
Growing up in a small town in the former German Democratic Republic, Bella was always fascinated by the lives of other people. The dreary gray of prefabricated buildings and the frequent lack of funds, were probably one of the reasons for the strong expression of her unique imagination, which is a distinguishing feature of her sometimes whimsical portraits today. In 2007 she discovered her passion for portrait photography and created her own photographic signature during the coming years. Her works show surreal worlds, some of them are fantastically and some a kind of bizarre. In 2012 she moved to the colorful city Berlin and realized her dream of living as an artist. This was followed by commercial works for international musicians, authors and journalists. Her works have received several international awards, including several gold medals. Live interviews, publications and exhibitions followed. Today, she successfully collaborates with the photographer Anja Bührer, takes over commercial works and sells her surreal portraits to all parts of the world.
