Anna van Kranen My name is Anna van Kranen and I live in the Netherlands. I'm a hobby photographer. I love many forms of art; (abstract) painting, photography, sculpture, theater, film and literature. I mainly create macro abstract and/or abstract photos. Most of them are an illusion and I give each photo a title that often misleads people. And lots of humor with funny figures or utensils. So it is the combination of the photo and the title that appeals to people. I have a so-called niche.

Interview with photographer Blake Rubin
There are few individuals who have been able to capture life behind the lens of a camera as Blake Rubin has. This incredible woman has accomplished an incredible amount of achievements in such a short amount of time on this earth. This multi-talented photographer and sometimes filmmaker has generated a fanbase that supports her incredible work. However, all great things have humble beginnings. Blake did not inherently know the importance of camera work from a young age. She used it as a tool to explore the world around her whenever she was little.
Blake Rubin was born in Philadelphia to a middle-class family. Though her family life was generally good, she wanted to explore the world more. However, Blake had social anxieties as a child and found it difficult to speak to other people. Her life would change whenever she discovered the power of photography. She had a revelation whenever she was in middle school during a photography class. She could see the world differently through the lens of her camera. This allowed her to study people and find out more about their personalities more effectively than having a conversation would ever allow. Blake knew that this was her calling in life and would spend her twenties developing her skill. Blake now works with clients all around the world and creates stunning masterpieces that truly capture the human essence. She is currently preparing for another large project and shows no signs of losing momentum in her career. She is truly an inspiration to all aspiring photographers around the world.
