Anna Nemerovsky

Anna Nemerovsky was born in Baku after World War II. She graduated from Azerbaijan State University with a degree in Semiconductor Physics. She taught Physics and Astronomy to high school students. Pretty soon, she was retrained to become a programmer, in the then-newly formed field of software engineering. In 1988, together with her large family, she moved from the capital of Azerbaijan to the capital of the world – New York City – where she worked in a bank for 24 years. No matter what direction her life took, Anna has always loved photography. In New York nothing could prevent her from further developing this hobby.

Like many contemporary photographers, Anna strives to create photographic paintings similar to the work of impressionist artists. She is also interested in capturing candid moments and unusual stories in her photos. She uses these images to illustrate her stories. In addition, Anna wrote several books: novels, plays, short stories, essays. Her novel, “And the Almighty gave Man free will,” received an international “Platinum Duke” diploma in the “Author’s Book for 2018” nomination.

Her essay, slightly revealing the artist’s mystical influence on the sitter, “A Little Mysticism on the Palette” was published in the magazine, “Parlor Room,” available at
She is an active member of the Jewish Art Guild since 2013.

Anna’s works have been shown at many exhibits, including two solo exhibits.>>

Photographs 9 x 12

1. Rain in Chicago. Buildings, faces and nature, carefully painted by artists, were highly valued in the pre-photographic era. Now photographers (me in particular) are trying to imitate artists, for example, expressionists.

2. Water for union members only.
If an episode made me smile, I try to capture this moment.

3. Prayer

4.Night, street, lantern, pharmacy,
Pointless and dim light.
Live for at least a quarter of a century –
Everything will be like this. There is no escape.
(based on the poem by A. Blok)
