Self-portrait inspired by Phil Stern's "James Dean in Sweater" 1955.


The freedom of a jazz musician, the spiritual search, the fulfillment in old age. Anna Baptist photographs the intangible.

Perhaps it is her time spent in a Buddhist center as a teenager that allows her to approach her subjects without preconceptions. Or maybe it’s her decade-long experience touring with musicians worldwide that allowed her photography to develop very down-to-earth, close to the actions, close to the people. 

Whether she is telling stories about star lawyers, crooners or elderly musicians sneaking out of rehab for a gig, Anna Baptist always manages to establish a sense of familiarity that enables people to express their natural selves.

Anna Baptist (*Gmunden/A) became a photographer on a concert trip to New York, when she shot her first published photo series. Previously, she studied business in Berlin and Singapore and later worked as a freelance artist manager. Her photographic works are widely recognized and regularly appear in music media. She lives and works in Berlin.
