BELLA VON EINSIEDEL
Fine Art Photographer, Berlin, Germany
Student, BA Clinical Art Therapy
Bella grew up in a small town in the former GDR, modestly and with few resources. In 2009 she discovered her passion for portrait photography and created her own photographic signature during the coming years. Her works show surreal worlds, some of them are fantastically and some a kind of bizarre. Topics such as self-esteem, diversity and our relationship to nature are recurring aspects that she explores and which are presented in a multi-faceted manner by means of photo editing. In 2012 she moved to Berlin, to give her artistic freedom more space.
