Anke Loots (b. 1991) grew up in Pretoria, South Africa. After graduating from Red & Yellow advertising school in Cape Town in 2012, she worked for six years as an assistant to award-winning photographer Pieter Hugo. She has since pursued and developed her own body of work, from street photography to portraiture as well as working with high end commercial brands & international publications. Her approach to photography seeks to find balance and harmony and create order by filtering through the chaos and obstacles of everyday life. The resulting images reflect on the impermanence of human existence, often in intimate, surrealist and meditative ways.
