While Anikó Robitz uses photography as a medium, her works can be appropriately understood from the visual vantage point of fine arts. Her works can be approached with ease by those who are familiar with the novel visual vocabulary of form developed in the 20th century, which can be linked primarily to abstraction, Suprematism and Minimalism, i.e., signalling a departure from anthropocentric representation. It is a departure from all that fine art photography, addressing a main stream public with its own genres – such as landscape, still-life, genre, portrait and nude photography, etc. – all stemming from the classification of genres or approaches pertaining to traditional art forms, with their history being linked to the once-unified world view.

Even though Robitz’s photos may seem to suggest at first glance that the artist is a studio photographer, the world of her works is by no means a constructed, staged world. Only the framing of the scene by the camera shows the characteristics of construction, whereas the dramatic sujet occurs out there in real life. In order for the artist to find her true field of work, she sets out – or rather takes a plane – in the manner of so many thousands of tourists, who incessantly record billions of shots, tainting the last remaining virgin spots in the world.
In some sense, Robitz is also a tourist; she joins the endless row of travellers, but she is interested in something that only she is able to notice on this planet when seeing the world-famous sights. This is what makes her work unique. In addition, instead of interpreting reality as the majority of photographers do, she creates a new world out of the hidden features of the existing world. She discovers the visible in the invisible, and makes the unknown known, because she has a key that no one else possesses.
