Anna Gaskell Bio

About The Artist

Anna Gaskell describes her work as an "elliptical narrative," as all of her series constantly change and shift with each re-telling. Borrowing heavily from Brothers Grimm fairy tales, mythology, ghost stories, and Alice in Wonderland, Gaskell is best known for her theatrical photographs of girls acting out staged scenarios. A former student of Gregory Crewdson, Gaskell's images appeal to anyone who has fond memories of the stories told to them in their childhood, as they transmit a hauntingly ominous yet gorgeously beautiful world full of mythology and nostalgic yearning. Working in both photography and film, Gaskell is the recipient of a Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize and a Nancy Graves Foundation Grant.
