Diana Anghel’s photographic work explores architectural manifestations, memory and the psychology of space. Her practice combines fine art with documentary photography and is always concerned with emotions and the uncanny. Also, themes such as alienation, childhood and identity run throughout her entire body of work.
“Still Home” is a deeply personal project which investigates the impact Brutalist architecture has on our state of mind. Through large-scale manipulated images and documentary photography, the project raises questions about the meaning of architecture as visual inheritance and how people adapted their homes in such authoritarian buildings. The project has explored the line between the real and the surreal, familiarity and alienation through scale, composition, digital intervention and medium.
Diana Anghel is a MA Photography graduate, London College of Communication (UAL) and is based both in London and Bucharest.
