Anjeleca Daniel is a New Zealand born artist and emerging photographer who finds transcendent inspiration and meaning from observing the natural landscape, its laws of opposites and its cyclical forces and rhythms. Anjeleca aims to facilitate a quiet, reflective viewer experience, with an intimate, photographic representation of these natural phenomena.
Through systematic development of her individual approach, Anjeleca has refined a distinctive mode of lens-less photography, using photographic film and a range of traditional, handcrafted, wooden, pinhole and zone plate cameras. Used for their specific attributes, pinhole cameras emphasise light over surface detail, creating soft, atmospheric imagery conducive to contemplation and wonder.
Throughout her life, Anjeleca has had strong associations with the Arts; these include studies in Music, Fine Art and Interior Design and nine years as an Art School Administrator. Anjeleca has formalised a life-long, photographic appreciation, by completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours (First Class) at the University of Tasmania, Australia, with a double major in Photography and Fine Art and Design Theory. Anjeleca is currently a PhD (Creative Arts) candidate at the University of Tasmania and works from her studio in Woodbridge, Tasmania.
