Biography

Regina Anzenberger was born in Vienna/Austria and raised in Pressbaum/Lower Austria. Started to paint when she was 13 years old. First illustrations for editorial publications in 1976. She has gained extensive knowledge in virtually every area of print media production, having worked variously as an illustrator, photographer and journalist. Her love of photography was strengthened by her experience as a chief photo editor for a range of Austrian magazines from 1983 to 1989. In 1989 she founded the AnzenbergerAgency – an international representation of photographers. Her personal photographic work has been published in magazines like Photographie and in different books. As a painter she has developped a special technique with the red sand of the Outback, the desert of Australia. From 1994 to 1998 she has been involved in the project APERTO – artists open their ateliers, with her paintings and in organising a photographic documentation which was also exhibited twice at the gallery of the Austrian artists association. In 1997 she has shown her Australian sand works together with Tibet photographs by Christine de Grancy at the famous Viennese hotel DAS TRIEST designed by Sir Terence Conran. At this occasion the Australian TV channel ABC introduced her as a painter within a documentary about Vienna.
