Anne Lass

Anne Lass is a Danish/German artist who studied documentary photography at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany. She currently lives and works on the Danish island of Bornholm. In her photographic works, she investigates different aspects of human living space at the beginning of our 21st century. Especially in the urban city-scapes, she finds conflict areas that influence her images: conflicts of functionalism and individual development, the association with nature, the concourse of construction and vastness, and, last but not least, to human interaction.

Anne Lass works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Australia, and the United States. Her photographs have been awarded the Profifoto Förderpreis, the Epson Art Photo Award, and the C/O Berlin Talents Award amongst others. Her works have been published in monographs and other art publications such as Hijacked (Kehrer), In Unserer Zeit (Deutscher Kunstverlag), Ertholmene and more. Her works are held in collections such as C/O Berlin, Statens Kunstfond Denmark and Centrum Beeldende Künste Rotterdam. Her book Low Season published in 2021 with Scottish publisher Another Place Press is sold out.
