Anna Dabrowska is a Polish photographer, raised in Africa, and now based in Paris. She started taking pictures back in her teens, photographing her girlfriends: “- Making them realize they were beautiful despite their teen complexes made me realize how important image is. But I did not pursue photography in my studies, it was supposed to be my hobby. After my bachelors degree in Political Science I realized the hobby became the obsession so I dove into it.” After 7 years of interning, assisting and producing, she started working for herself about two years ago. Today she’s appearing on Ben Trovato for the first time with the beautiful story “Angel Wings“, featuring the wonderful Myrthe De Poel with Nathalie Agency Paris. Stylist for the shoot was Marz Atashi, Susana Santos did the hair and make up, while Akari Sugino was the manicurist.
Anna says this about the story: “- In french there is a very poetic expression that one says when during a conversation all of the people suddenly stop speaking and silence sets in for a few seconds: “Un ange est passe” - “An angel just flew by”.
So I wanted angelic silence.”
She says on a daily basis anything can stand out and inspire her, be that an article, a decor or pola’s of a new face. “- There are precise moments in life you would want to freeze and store away: a lover’s look of desire, a friend’s conniving wink… There are things you see and feel and then forget. The magic of photography brings it all back. That’s the kind of images I would like to do. ”
