Ana Junko

T

he emotional impact of an image is photographer Ana Junko’s catalyst for making work; using this sense of feeling as a means of visual communication.

Inspired by her days in the darkroom, there is a strong analogue aesthetic that runs throughout her portfolio of work, which she creates in emotively titled series’ such as ‘Ephemeral Symphony’, ‘In Honour of the Shadows’ and most recently, ‘Synthesis’. The monochromatic photographs are washed in elements of over-exposure, motion blurs and blank space; all adding to the poetic language of the artist.

Based in Santander in northern Spain, Junko attended the prestigious art school of Oviedo, and her studies in drawing and painting still influence her photographic compositions. She exhibits her work in Spain, with two planned exhibitions for 2019. anajunko.com savannahpjk@gmail.com
