About Anneliese Varaldiev
Anneliese Varaldiev is a photographer and videographer whose work is in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Cinémathèque Française, the Museé d'Art Moderne (Paris), and the Fotomuseum Winterthur (Switzerland), as well as a number of private collections. Her camera work for broadcast media includes a long association with French television, for documentaries (or, more precisely, "film essays") on such figures as Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Orson Welles, and Roy Lichtenstein. Her American credits include Dateline NBC, the E! Entertainment Network, VH1 and Animal Planet. Vaaldiev's portraits have appeared in a number of books and magazines, and as artwork for classical music CD's (the most recent being the Ysaÿe Quartet's recording of Mozart Piano Quartets). Her own book, "Kameramusik," a series of photographs of classical musicians—including Pierre Boulez, Janos Starker, Helene Grimaud and Alfred Brendel—will be published this year. She has exhibited at Art Basel (Switzerland), Galerie Michèle Chomette (Paris), Stephen Cohen Gallery (LA), the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University, Photo LA, LACDA, EZTV, and the 18th Street Gallery (Santa Monica), among others.
