How Anna uses LEGO® bricks to capture a whole new world
Anna Bitanga is a supermom and works as a portrait photographer in Spain.
One thing you probably wouldn’t know by looking at her, is that she has a passion for LEGO® bricks. She’s one of the many working moms out there who enjoys building LEGO sets as an adult.
As a child she often played with bricks but as she got older, life’s normal distractions came into play – those memorable teenage years, high school, a full-time job. LEGO sets had become a fond memory from childhood.
Until she had a baby of her own.
There are so many reasons why people re-discover LEGO building later in life. For Anna, it was the combination of photography and having a young child.
She was looking for a convenient way to continue shooting while she had a baby, so she started taking minifigures around with her, buggy in tow – and while her son was playing on the grass or sand, she would take the opportunity to snap experimental shots of minifigures from her phone.
