Angelina Bertrand is originally from Latvia, and is widely travelled, having until recently spent much of the last 10 Years in Paraguay.

Now living on the shores of Lake Geneva, in Switzerland, with her young family, she has become a Photographic Artist, specialising in portraiture, and studio commissions.

Angelina has a growing collection of Leica cameras, of which one of her favourites is the M monochrome “Drifter” embellished by Lenny Kravitz, which she uses to demonstrate the considerable potential of her monochrome photography.

Photography for Angelina is “ like a form of therapy between you and the World. You can express how you see life through your eyes – and the lens of a camera – so that everyone else can enjoy this too.”

THE LEICA CAMERA BLOG

D’aussi loin qu’elle se souvienne, la photographie a toujours fait partie de sa vie. Mais le point de bascule précis entre un passe-temps occasionnel et une véritable passion se situe en février 2020. Angelina Bertrand reçoit alors de son mari, à l’occasion de son anniversaire, un Leica. Un cadeau qui, l’air de rien, va l’emmener sur un chemin artistique passionnant: le portrait.

 

Dès l’appareil en main, Angelina Bertrand se prend au jeu. Sa meilleure amie se marie à Londres? Elle sera sa photographe attitrée. Loin d’être une novice en matière de photographie, elle cherche toujours à repousser les limites de son nouveau boîtier. Expérimente chaque fois que l’occasion se présente. Après avoir suivi un premier cours donné par Chris de la Bottière au sein de la Leica Akademie Suisse romande, Angelina Bertrand décide de suivre pendant six mois, aux côté de Jeremy Spierer, une master class consacrée au portrait.
