About Anna Malmberg
If you ask Anna Malmberg where the mystery and the loneliness within her photographs come from, she will probably answer that she got this aesthetic from her wild childhood. As a matter of fact, she grew up in a very old house somewhere in the North of Sweden, surrounded by forests and lakes, with ghosts and spirits as closest neiborhood. When she turned 14, her artist parents built her up a dark room. She started to develop her experimentations as a photographer because it was the only way she had to create a gate between fairy tales and reality, timeless fantasy and present time. She got a photo schoolarship at age 18 and moved to Stockholm. There she started her photo studies at GFU, continued with photogravure at Biskops-Arnö and then photocommunication at Bilder Nordic School of Photography at Berghs. During those years she also assisted different photographers such as Lennart Nilsson among others. She started to work as her own in art and fashion business. She had several exhibitions in Sweden and Taiwan. After ten years in Stockholm she moved to Paris in August 2010 where she still lives.
