Anke Loots

Photographer, South Africa (b. 1991) 

Anke Loots' work is a meditation on the natural beauty of the world. Her work serves to isolate her subject matter to highlight the moment of separation from the whole and to see her subject as it is, in isolation. She pays respect to the innate dynamic between male and female; the fundamental relationship of the natural world by honouring the tension and harmony of this union. Using light to define her focal point, serenity arises as the purity of form fills space. Inspired by the perfect balance of the complex systems within nature, her work evokes a deep connection to the subject.
