Lia Niobe


Lia Niobe is a fine art photographer and surrealist based in Austria


"My passion for photography was first awakened when a friend, who taught me many things about photography, put a camera in my hands and I enjoyed discovering how the world looked through new eyes. After a while of experimenting with Nature Photography I started taking fine art and surrealistic photographs, on which my main focus now lies."

Michaela Haider was born in Austria in 1996. She started taking photographs at age 15, choosing the name Lia Niobe for her online presence and teaching herself the technical aspects of post-processing. Her focus lies on fine art and portrait photograohy. She has had various publications online and in magazines and her images have been included in group and solo exhibitions.


About my work

I show different scenes, in different worlds, with their own rules. My main focus lies on the interaction of the human form with light and nature. Creating from a place of intuition there has been a transition in my work from surrealistic storytelling to a more serene imagery with a focus on composition, aesthetics and expression. I want my images to show places, in which one can get lost. My goal is to evoke an emotional response within the viewer as the person is drawn into the scene before them.
