British fine-art and commercial photographer, Miss Aniela
Miss Aniela is a fine-art and commercial photographer, and published author based in the UK.
Aniela is the middle name that forms the pseudonym of Natalie Dybisz, the photographer behind the name.
Miss Aniela’s self-portraiture began with spontaneous impulses to shoot portraits ‘starring’ herself with improvised lighting and simple set-ups.
Her work has been compared to the work of Francesca Woodman and Sam Taylor-Wood, and the comparisons to Cindy Sherman are also obvious.
However, Miss Aniela constantly seeks to explore and remix her multifarious inspirations to contextualize herself into different imagined narratives, intended as both personal and universal.
She takes her inspiration from a variety of sources: from dreams and childhood, to literature and Dutch paintings.
Natalie’s first book Self-Portrait Photography was published in the UK and US in 2011, and her second book, Creative Portrait Photography in spring 2012.
She is currently working on her semi-commercial series ‘Surreal Fashion’ and fine-art environmental series ‘Ecology’.
