Life and workEdit

Ana Dias was born in Porto, Portugal, in 1984. She graduated from the Porto Superior School of Art in fine arts, specializing in drawing, in 2007. Having finished her education, she started teaching serigraphy, lithography and engraving at that institution. Her background in fine arts led her to photography, which came to be her primary way of artistic expression. As a photographer she works mainly with erotic femininity.[2]

In 2012 she was a winner in the Fotoerotika Konkurs, organized by the Serbian edition of Playboy magazine, and her work was published in the magazine. In November 2012 she photographed the model Raquel Henriques for her first cover of the Portuguese edition of Playboy. Ana Dias earned a reputation and Playboy invitations from around the world: South Africa, Germany, Netherlands, France, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Thailand among many others. She is the only Portuguese photographer with a career in Playboy Enterprises International, regularly collaborating with editions of the magazine in more than 20 countries.[3][4]
