is a Canadian/Bosnian fine art photographer and visual artist, working primarly in monochrome photography. Born in 1975 in Slovenia (former Yugoslavia) and after many years of wandering through many countries (Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Poland, Canada and USA); being a former refugee and immigrant; she currently lives with her family in Austria.
“I’m an internationally published and exhibited fine art photographer and visual artist. My art reflects me; my thoughts, my emotions, my life experience; and is essentially centered and inspired by the simplest, uncomplicated and quieter side of life, as well as the beauty of natural world. I try to stimulate the viewers imagination by touching them through sometimes dramatic and poetic creations. I believe that all creative work is essentially autobiographical; everything that we are, feel, our heritage, curiosity, imagination, longing, our thoughts and emotions merge into our artwork.”
Anita creates fine art photographs, but she also has interest in street and photojournalistic photography. Her images are to be found in private collections worldwide (USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, etc.). Her artwork has been published both in print (art books and magazines) and online (ebooks and galleries) in various countries (USA, India, UK, Germany, Portugal, etc.). She is also contributing freelance photographer at Transterra Media, a member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), a stock photographer at iStockphoto, and jewelry and card designer at Artful Mind Studio. Anita is currently enrolled in The Complete Course in Professional Photography in the New York Institute of Photography, and is a supporter of Art in all of us.
“Being deeply influenced by the Japanese philosophy that embraces simplicity, and the Chinese philosophy that emphasizes the importance of the family, I strive not to forget who I am and where I come from.”
