FEATURE: Johannesburg-based creative director and artist Anthony Bila wows with beautiful fine art photography

May 6, 2016

Anthony Bila is a creative director, artist, and photographer from South Africa. Bila’s photographic style is very bold and cinematic. Every still is a work of art that portrays a narrative, even in the editorial shots. Interestingly enough, Bila is also colorblind—a fact that’s not readily noticeable in his work, outside of his draw to neutrals, greens, grays, and hints of maroon. Check out some of our favorite shots down below.
