Siren (2021). Telling a story of comfort within adolescence is most important in my work. This photo visually communicates homecoming. Coming back to self and to memories known but forgotten, of places of true solace.

Aunties in the Park

Aunties in the Park Baltimore, 2021
Aunties in the Park (2021) is a throwback to cookouts where the aunties get dressed up and get together. It is a bright and blissful recollection of foreign renditions of American traditions .

About Anna

Baltimore City

Anna Divinagracia is a director and photographer based in Baltimore City. She was born in Davao City, Philippines and later moved to Baltimore as an immigrant at the age of 12. Through her shared experiences in both cities, she paints a picture narrative of the two cultures that shaped her reality. By blending elements of portraiture, fashion, and fine art photography, her photos tell a story of vivid nostalgia through tenderness and vulnerability.

Pamabahay

Pambahay (2020) is in my native language Tagalog. It translates to "in the house." This project tells the story of the routines we have practiced since life outside became suspended due to the unexpected quarantine that was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It focuses on the comfort of home and the awareness of the beauty that is found in the everyday and seemingly monotonous actions that we take. Since the pandemic people have been given a chance to look within to appreciate the fundamental of being. Nothing is more rudimentary than the element of home. Pambahay is a photo series that captures these stories.

Directed and photographed by Anna Divinagracia.

Comfortably Numb

Comfortably Numb is a color series. It is an effort to visually express the frustrations of continually feeling displaced. It was created when my visa expired and I left Baltimore without a return ticket. Although I was returning home to the Philippines, I was leaving the home I have in Baltimore. Comfortably Numb is my journey to finding and maintaining peace through that challenging time. It is a collection of photographs of my experience.
