Anna Sweet
The daughter of an artist, Anna Sweet was raised in galleries and studios. Her professional training includes a Bachelor of Fine Art from New York’s prestigious School of Visual Arts. After graduating, she studied under the world renowned fashion photographer Rankin in London. Photography called to her for its capacity to capture an instant in time. Like a modern day Impressionist, Sweet strives to capture the spirit and essence of a moment. The focus of Anna Sweet’s current series of work is women, immersed in water, at the "decisive moment" of their expression (to use the words of Cartier-Bresson). Sweet manipulates the images she creates by printing them on aluminum then encasing them in semi-precious materials including crystal, metal pigments, minerals, and glass. Each piece is finished with a UV resin that protects and preserves the underlying photographic print. The encased materials and photographic image seemingly coalesce into a stunning, three-dimensional representation of the subjects. The subjects in this series become ethereal displays of female beauty. Anna Sweet is constantly looking for new ways to bring photographs to life, constantly experimenting to make her works lucid, vivid, and visually three-dimensional, as though they were windows into reality.
