Anel Wessels photographer and videographer

Anel Wessels uses photography to examine the traumas and moments of joy of the human condition. Her work reinterprets memory and documents the processes of healing – both her own, and that of loved ones. Her work carries the gravitas implicit in such serious subject matter, but is simultaneously uplifted through subtle and poetic imagery. Wessels cultivated her passion for film photography while studying at The Michaelis School of Fine Art. She combines the documentary qualities of the medium with an intuitive, tactile approach to her subjects and environment, allowing her to create work that is intimate and candid, inviting the viewer to bear witness. She lives and works in Cape Town.
