Let me stay tender-hearted, despite despite despite…

Anna Sibylla is an Italian-Dutch artist with Asian roots, currently based in the Netherlands.

Her background in film and storytelling – graduated in directing at the Scuola Nazionale di Cinema in Rome – forms the foundation of her photography work, which is imbued with a longing for the past. Her aesthetics are inspired by old paintings and bygone eras, motherhood & childhood nostalgia, as well as myths and fairy tales.

“For me photography has always been an intermediary between inner- and outer worlds. My work is an ongoing exploration of vulnerability and tenderness, of which I believe we need a lot, especially given the fragile state of the world we live in right now.”
