Anja Niemi

is a Norwegian photographer. 

‘I have always loved hotel rooms. I love the privacy and the anonymity and I spend a long time choosing the right room’

This intriguing series is a self-portrait project entitled Do Not Disturb. To create each scene, the artist sought out various hotel rooms, checked in, put up the “do not disturb” sign, and used the settings as her backdrops. She hauled a suitcase filled with clothing and wigs along with her and, through what Niemi calls protective layers of disguise, she began to create different characters for each story.
