A look at the Works of Angela Kaja Ferro

View gallery

The next artist we’re featuring this week is Angela Kaja Ferro, a daughter of a German and an Italian who grew up in Australia surrounded by sprawling greenery and quiet. This instilled in her a sense of wonderment for light and space and wild that often weaves itself into her works, mingled with a preferred dreamy, painterly aesthetic.

Angela: The past year has been a interesting transition for me as I shifted from shooting portraits and campaigns to falling in love with the wilderness, as I craving a way to re-centre myself; pathways and rivers have become a regular depiction in my work as a visceral representation of my ongoing journey into this new creative territory. I have fallen in love with the mountains and living out of a backpack; the challenges involved in this kind of lifestyle have not only allowed me access to places that pushed my work into another realm of possibility, but the sweat – and sometimes, blood – is a tangible investment of energy into the images I capture.

I recently spent six months hiking and van living in New Zealand, and have now moved onto the Swiss alps. In the mountains I shoot with light, minimal equipment: a Nikon Df with a 28mm f/2.8 lens.
