Anja Niemi: In Character is the first career retrospective monograph by one of the most exciting talents working in contemporary photography. Niemi's work has emerged as a distinctive force within the venerable tradition of conceptual self- portraiture. A photo artist who works alone - photographing, staging, and acting out the characters in all of her images - Niemi is a constant presence (in character) in her work, developing complex, nuanced narratives through evocative costume and styling. In her bewitching Darlene & Me series she reconfigures the concept of the Hitchcock blond within a pristine Lynchian landscape for her own visual pleasure - and ours - while in She Could Have Been a Cowboy she turns the lens to a life lived under the constraints of conformity. With over one hundred and seventy photographs organised into the six series that have defined Niemi's career to date, supported by an essay and interview by Max Houghton, Anja Niemi: In Character is the perfect introduction for those encountering Niemi's work for the first time, and a comprehensive retrospective for her longtime followers.
