The word ‘form’ implies more than just the physical shape of something. 
What do I need to form something I can identify with? 
I thought I would need bodies and skin to shape my message. 
But that was not enough. 
In the very end, as always, I noticed that something was missing. 
I needed intimacy, trust and genuine comfort from the people being photographed to form something worth creating.

Annika Weertz is a German artist that uses photography to express herself and the intimacy everyone can experience in their daily life.
Her aim is to always work closely with her subjects in order to create an intimate and unique atmosphere.
Currently, her body of work focuses on intimate portraits and documentation as well as on the desexualisation of the female body and the desmantling of gender stereotypes.
