Anne Vest Campaign by photographer Kia Hartelius
 

Hi! I’m Kia, a photographer living and working on planet earth. I love doing images that are raw,unconventional, unisex, humorous at times (but never ever boring.)

I was raised in a little Copenhagen suburb called Sun-red. But since it was mostly raining I had the time to study my dads photo books and magazines.

What occured to me was that 99,9% of the photographers were men, and 99,9% of the models were women. And the women were captured with the mind - and for the mind - of men. I want to change that! With clear colours and an alternative casting I want to provoke emotions, challenge perceptions, reshape and redefine the medium. 

And I’m glad that a lot of magazines and clients have started to trust me in my mission. I’ve been working with clients like NIKE, Hummel, Ace & Tate to name a few and I was published by i-D Magazine, Vogue Italia, HUNGER, The Impression and many more.
