136 ARTIST SHOWCASE Ana Junko
The labyrints of reality, 2019, photography, 34 x 50 cm
he black and white which Ana Junko uses throughout her photographs allows for a greater freedom of interpretation, with elements of over-exposure, motion blurs and blank space which all add to the poetic language of the artist. She considers her photography as an emotive language, using it to communicate with the viewer in an open dialogue. Her images are always metaphors rather than a simple depiction of what can be seen; a translation of reality liberated from representative responsibility.
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 locally in Spain, and recently also in the UK. anajunko.com email@example.com
