Across cultures and centuries, the forest has occupied a unique place in our collective imagination and there are countless histories and myths that involve humankind venturing beyond the structured limits of civilization into the chaotic labyrinth of the woods.

About the Artist


Anna Beeke (b. 1984) is a Los Angeles-based documentary and fine arts photographer. Her work captures ephemeral moments that examine the symbiotic relationship between humanity and their natural surroundings. Her vieled lighting, composed frames, and seemingly unaware subjects create a mystical narrative evocative of fairy tales, a nod to Beeke’s interest in, and study of, literature. In addition to distinguished honors, her work has been featured in several international exhibitions. Beeke holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in Photography, Video, and Related Media as well as a BA in English from Oberlin College.
