Self portrait, 2010


Steven Anggrek is a Zürich based fine art analog photographer. Born in the remote Moluccas islands of Indonesia, he worshiped -and still does- the beauty of Mother Nature; now resides in Europe, the complexities of human nature get his attention.
Steven works mainly with 35mm film, develops the negatives himself, and then embraces the digital editing tools to give the photographs the “feeling,” a play of light and shadow, which hopefully evokes the emotions of the viewers.
He has won multiple international photography awards such as Honorable Mention winner category Fine Art of Prix de la Photographie Paris (2015), Honorable Mention Moscow International Foto Awards (2014, 2015, and 2018), finalist of Tzipac Zebra awards category Portrait Exposée and Fine Art (2014, 2015, and 2016). His works have been exhibited in international venues e.g. Agora Gallery New York (2016), Tokyo International Art Fair (2016), and at PhotoSCHWEIZ 19 in Zürich (2019).
