My Bio
Annie Bertram, trademark photo art of a unique kind. Her photographic vision is dreamy and emotional, her portrait shots highly original. Reduced to their very essence, they provide insights on the relationship of humans to the world of fiction and vice versa. Her subjects are staged to build new identities: daydreams, desires, fairy tales… yet also nightmares.
A sense of familiarity between people and scenery – a sort of merging, a synergy. Annie’s favorite backdrops are unique and often morbid locations: factories, dilapidated houses and mystic natural sceneries… places that breathe the air of the bizarre, the obsolete or of secrecy. She directs the eye to things that are often overlooked – thoughts, emotions, fate. This intention is amplified by the direct and narrative way the often female protagonists are instructed to look at the camera.

Annie Bertram is working very passionately with people for more than 15 years. She aims for more than just a beautifully photographed face. Annie is looking for the person behind the glamour, for the human being behind the persona. “The all-defining, intimate moment where the model lets me glimpse behind his or her façade is my biggest challenge.”

Numerous publications and exhibitions followed, shootings for artists, bands and fashion brands, as well as video productions. Her second photo book “Wahre Märchen” was awarded “book of the year 2008” and sold-out in no time. At the moment, Annie is busy preparing international exhibitions following the official release of her new book “Obsolete Angels.” She is also working on a new subject. “This is still a secret”, she reveals with a smile.

Annie Bertram – Between the Worlds Order Link: Throughout history, lost places have always exerted a special kind of fascination on us. Emanating an otherworldly aura and somewhat morbid beauty, these parallel universes were once conceived and shaped by humans into a functional and artistic shape, only to be reclaimed by nature, slowly but persistently. Most of us will have reminiscences of some dilapidated “haunted mansion” on the outskirts of town, which would beckon us relentlessly as children even though it filled us with fear. In publishing “Between the Worlds”, renowned goth-scene photographer and visual artist Annie Bertram has fulfilled one of her long cherished dreams. Fascinated by these lost places since her youth, it was in 2003 that she started to attempt to capture the unique magic of these locations using her keen eye for visual composition and her

Last year in autumn the time was right for my next Iceland adventure. The country provides so many kinds of different landscape, where are hard to find somewhere else. Beautiful and wild black beaches, endless lava-fields, impressive glaciers, gigantic waterfalls..all combined with the smell of freedom. Winter is always coming early to Iceland, that´s why we had snow already at the beginning of September. In this gallery I show you some of the magical places like: Krafla surrounded by his lava-fields in the snow, waterfalls Dettifoss and Goðafoss (waterfall of the gods), the glacial canyon Ásbyrgi famous for it´s specia
