Photographer #324: Marianne Engel

Marianne Engel, 1972, Switzerland, is a photographer who also concentrates on various other art forms. She creates objects, works on installations and collaborates with various artists. She graduated in Biochemistry at the University of Z├╝rich in 2001. The interest in biochemistry is visible in various bodies of works. On objects as bacteria, fish and bonsai trees she used a glow in the dark pigment creating alien like imagery. Her photographs of trees and other objects in nature, often photographed in the dark using a painting with light technique become magical and fantastical. Her photographs are dramatic and often feel like a hallucination. The following images come from her extensive portfolio.
