Ana Pinto (b. 1982) is a Portuguese photographer whose current practice is influenced by nostalgia, the future, and technological progress. She utilizes photography to depict scenes where technologies and artificiality seem to embody and redefine our experience. Alternating between moods of nostalgia and futuristic awe, she aims to conciliate the concepts of past and future while reflecting on temporal belonging and the aesthetics of a colorful technology driven world.
In 2016, she was a finalist of the Arte Laguna Prize and shortlisted for the Renaissance Photography Prize. More recently, she was one of the winners of PDN's Eight Annual Exposure Award. Her work has been exhibited in the United States, Italy, Hungary, and the U.K. She will start her MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art this fall.
