Natalie ‘Miss Aniela’ Dybisz was born in Leeds, 1986, and studied BA English & Media at University of Sussex. Her career as an artist began whilst still at University, and shortly following, was sought to speak in the US for Microsoft and offered solo shows in London and Madrid. She is now a fine-art and commercial photographer based in London.
Natalie’s work has been exhibited internationally in Europe and the US, with representation in Madrid, LA and San Diego, and six solo exhibitions to date. Her work has been featured in numerous media worldwide, including NY Arts, Fahrenheit Mexico, El Pais, ALARM Chicago, PH magazine, Vogue Italia, BBC, American Photo, and The Guardian.
Natalie’s self-portraiture-based work from 2006-09 (a selection of which appears on this website) has been extensively showcased in shows, press and books, with her book Self-Portrait Photography published in the UK and US in 2011, and her second book, Creative Portrait Photography in spring 2012. She is currently working on her semi-commercial series ‘Surreal Fashion’ and fine-art series ‘Ecology’. Miss Aniela is also continually active with events and talks, and invited to judge photography competitions. In 2011 Miss Aniela co-hosted one of the biggest workshops in the industry for PODAS (Phase One Digital Artist Series) alongside fashion photographer Drew Gardner. She has also self-branded her own workshop-style event, the ‘Fashion Shoot Experience’ in London and New York.
“Photography is always my ‘living’ whether I am working on personal or commercial work, because it is creating that keeps me feeling alive. I pour my mind into everything I create, and always aim to push the envelope with consistently compelling imagery with the highest production value I can make possible. In my personal work I want to stir people to question and to think, intelligibly – about the problems, the beauty, and the conflict between them, in the world around us today.”?
