Natalie Dybisz is a young fine-art and commercial photographer from the UK who stunned the art world by using Flickr to showcase her imaginative work breaking with the tradition of spending years as struggling, unknown artist. In a short period of time, she has developed a huge following that has catapulted her to one-woman gallery shows and guest appearances at photographic venues throughout the world.

She has work that covers fine-art, surreal, fashion and self-portraits. Based in London but with a high profile in the USA, more often known by her huge fan following as Miss Aniela, she has risen to prominence quickly, embracing digital photography in a way other artists have shied away from and quickly breaking ground both online and in traditional media. Self-taught in photography, her passion began with creating high-impact, often surreal self-portraits as ‘Miss Aniela’, Natalie’s alter ego and the subject of her self-portraiture. First noticed through the internet (Miss Aniela currently has five and a half million views on Flickr), her work now sells as limited-edition fine art and is exhibited worldwide.

She runs regular workshops throughout the UK and USA where she covers her self-portraiture work where she began as well as her fashion surreal images that she regularly creates for her own work and clients worldwide. He beginnings came from her spontaneous impulses to shoot portraits ‘starring’ herself with improvised lighting and simple set-ups. Her work has been compared to the work of Francesca Woodman and Sam Taylor-Wood, and Cindy Sherman. However, Miss Aniela constantly seeks to explore and remix her inspirations to contextualise herself into different imagined narratives, intended as both personal and universal. She takes her inspiration from a variety of sources: from dreams and childhood, to literature and Dutch paintings.

Her work has been published in Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair Italy, American Photo, Alarm Chicago, Elle Germany, The Metro, Fahrenheit Contemporary Art Mexico, Digital Photo Pro. She has exhibited in London, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, San Diego, Brighton, Ireland, Madrid, Buenos Aires and Guernsey.
