Anna Lilleengen is a visual artist using vintage analogue cameras to create process-driven works on film that describe the relationship between self and environment.

Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with family roots in Sweden & Norway, her practice looks at materiality and capturing the ephemeral in dream-like sequences that often repeat and are layered or distorted in the camera to open up portals from the ordinary into more timeless places, from within which the viewer can reflect and imagine another way of being in their environment.

The images were taken with a camera dating from 1937 onto Kodak Portra medium format film, and are not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Anna also uses a large format wooden plate camera with bellows dating from the 1870s, for which she creates 'plates' using light sensitive paper. The brass lens is older still and lends a vignette circular effect to the images she takes using this camera. See more at her website

With an MA in Image and Time Based Media from Harrogate School of Arts (part of Leeds Beckett University) Anna is well and truly local, even if many of her pictures are taken during visits to her ancestral home of Sweden and Norway. Last year she exhibited at the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate as part of the Force of Nature / Turner: Northern Exposure shows. This year she has exhibited at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley, Leeds as part of their 'Body of Water' show and her site specific work is currently on display in situ at Dalby Forest, as part of the SelfScapes 2021 nature and art research cluster.

This is her fourth time exhibiting at Saltaire Arts Trail Open Houses (previous years: 2016, 2017 and 2020 - a virtual exhibition).

Anna Lilleengen is taking part in the new format of live display at Saltaire Arts Trail called the Window Gallery Trail. This is an exhibition format where the artists' work is displayed in the windows of Saltaire houses. Anna's work can be viewed in the window of 16 Mary Street, Saltaire until Sunday 6th June.
