Ana Skobe is a photographer with an architectural background who lives and works between Ljubljana and Zürich.

She graduated in 2019 from the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana, with a master’s thesis on architectural photography and is now continuing her theoretical endeavors in doctoral studies.

Ana works both on personal research and commissioned projects. Her photographs have been exhibited and awarded, as well as published in domestic and foreign architectural and design magazines. In them, she conveys her experience of space, not only describing the architecture but combining the idea materialized in the object and its relationship to the space with her own idea of the same object. She is interested in how it can be perceived - what is the potential of its specific spatial solutions - and calls that (re)constructing the architecture.
