Anna and Jordan Rathkopf are a photo/video team creating and producing visual narratives about intimate personal journeys. We focus on issues of identity, health, resilience, and what it means to be part of a community.

Anna was raised in Prague, in the shadows of historic architecture and world-class museums. She learned about composition, the use of light, and how to capture rare moments from her uncle, a renowned Eastern European photographer.

Jordan, a former media relations specialist, grew up in Brooklyn, where he learned to connect with people from all walks of life and developed an eye for symmetry and hidden charm. He finds that as different as people are, they're still mostly the same: They want to be understood, they like a good story, and most can be disarmed with an unexpected compliment.

Anna met Jordan at an '80s-themed nightclub in Prague after he was struck by her unconventional dance moves.
