Born and raised in Alsace, France, Anna Grevenitis is a photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. Drawing on the experiences of the domestic to inform her daily practice, she uses her home as a stage and her body and the body of others in her familial sphere as characters in order to deliver, in the photographs, the essence of what she wants to express about family and the self. For her work, the act of performing is an important step in image making. Nowadays a writing teacher at Hunter College and Baruch College in NYC, she divides her time between teaching, research and creation, and she is interested in building long term projects in photography as an act of establishing visual memory and engaging in social visibility. Grevenitis has been exhibited in the United States and internationally. Her series REGARD has been featured in The New Yorker and more recently has been recognized by the Critic’s Choice Award of Lensculture, the Black and White Award of the Lucie Foundation and has been chosen as one of the three finalists of the 2022 Arnold Newman Prize. Her first solo show will be exhibited at Women’s University in Denton Texas in Spring 2023.
