“Photography is not only my profession but my life‘s passion. I want to tell stories; I want to provoke; and I want to draw attention to topics purposely rejected by the media. My work truly means something if I can reach just one single person by doing so.“ ~ Anja Grundböck
1st photo: Meat Lovers
"The goal of the ghoulish photo production meat lovers is to draws attention to the insatiable mass meat consumption with all its consequences.
Humans kill over 56 billion farmed animals every year. These figures do not even include fish and other sea animals whose deaths are only measured in tones."

2nd photo: the torture behind the glamour
"The purpose of the photo shooting the torture behind the glamour is to take a stand against animal cruelty and to draw attention to the horrific treatment in fur farms.
The kind of fashion that our society refers to as glamorous, beautiful, classy and fashionable costs approximately 120 million animals their lives annually."

a child‘s playground
"On average, one in ten children is sexually abused worldwide. No matter what race, religion, nationality or social class, no matter if you live in Austria or South Africa, child abuse is on the daily agenda."

Within just a few years, Anja Grundböck has made a name for herself in the Austrian photography industry.
She especially draws attention through her imaginative picture compositions and light effects.
Photography is not just her job and passion, but it gives her the opportunity to reach a person's innermost part, to show social challenges figuratively and to trigger emotions in the viewer. Anja wants to motivate people to contemplate and reflect; she wants to encourage them to critically question occurrences and events and to not just accept our social difficulties.
Through her images she tells stories. Stories that sometimes require a lot of thought and time to attain perfection. Her calm and clear approach to shootings and the methodological preparation of her concepts are the key to her success.
