"I read cities and moments
like a surfer reads a wave". Erika Anna Schumacher
As an artist and photographer Erika Anna Schumacher is interested in the side streets, the unseen, the overlooked, underrated everyday.
Erika Anna Schumacher studied photography/painting and interdisciplinary work at the Academy of fine Arts in Essen from 2006-2010. She is a master student and passed her exams with distinction.
Influenced by the sensuality of painting and the scenery of film, she takes the camera to document images of the city that reflect her inner images. She creates scenes and sequences that emanate from a narrative and still maintain their poetic mystery.
While her main studio is based in Düsseldorf/Germany, she uses every opportunity to follow her passion and travel and photograph worldwide in Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America.
In autumn 2018 she received a scholarship from the state capital Düsseldorf and the Multimedia Art Museum Moscow for a two-month artist residency.
