Ana Peraica's work focuses primarily on post-digital photography; this includes semiautomated and automated photographic genres and forms, such as selfies, total images, deep images, and generative photography, in addition to operative images. Recently, she has defined the field of photogenetics, proposing several useful concepts for generative photography, including photogenes and phototypes, which she uses in the context of the Sixth extinction, characteristic for Photographocene (photography recording demise of life) and the problem of generative images of species.

In addition to being theoretical, Ana currently leads the photographic studio, opened in 1934 by her grandfather, as the third generation of photographers. As the studio is set on the main square of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, in Split, Croatia, she also is an advocate for the protection and preservation of living continuity of the UNESCO World Heritage.
