When invited to join the gallery, Ana Caldas sent a statement describing her relationship to photography. By stating clearly that she feels like an amateur of photography and doesn't want to take it too seriously, she automatically frees herself from what some would call the burden of being a career-artist. The time spent on writing and applying for grants and exhibition spaces can instead be used to produce, which might mean more joy for us, the online audience. She used to have an Instagram but is currently only sharing her pictures through Flickr. She is the proof that having a more light-hearted approach does not necessarily result in a lesser work.
