Anja Matthes is an award-winning documentary photographer, videographer, and visual storyteller based in New York City. Over the past seven years, Matthes has focused her personal work on LGBTQ youth of color. Matthes has exhibited projects about the Kiki Ballroom scene at Rayko Gallery and SF CameraWorks. In 2016, Anja received the International Women in Journalism (IWMF) grant for her long-term project about the Kiki scene. With the support of IWMF, Housing Works and Open Source Gallery, Matthes produced and distributed the Kiki Yearbook to members of the Kiki scene. The book was introduced into the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture archive and the project was featured in W Magazine. Her work with the Kiki scene was also featured in The Atlantic. Matthes won the Pride Photo Award 2019 and in February, she received an HMI Honors Award for her work with the Kiki youth.
