Eva Bachmann is a lens based artist and educator. She lives and works in London.

Her photographic series are a visual inquiry into widely overlooked architectural elements. Like an urban archaeologist, she decodes the language of mundane spaces, tracing cultural and historical references through layers of time.

The other main aspect of Bachmann’s work is her investigation of uncanny interactions between light and shade, as shown in her Wall Drawings and Seven Hours series.

As an educator, she teaches art and photography in Further Education and community institutions.
