In Anja Niemi‘s new series Starlets, the Norwegian photographer combines the self-portrait with the idea of the staged narrative. The images are like film stills or movie posters, with herself cast as all the characters. Niemi calls herself a “one-man band”, as she always works alone.
“We have a tendency to cover up our flaws and decay, hiding all the ugliness of life and I try to have a bit of humor about it.”
~ Anja Niemi
Starlets is on view @ The Little Black Gallery, London.
