About the author
Anne was born in Nottingham, England and immigrated to Ottawa, Canada with her family at the age of three. Halifax, Nova Scotia has been home for over 40 years.
Anne received her first camera, a Kodak instamatic, as a birthday gift from her father at the age of 15 and she has been taking photos ever since. For over 25 years, she worked mainly in black & white and did her own printing but when she went digital in 2010, digital colour photography became her main medium and focus of her artistic expression.
Anne's work is inspired by people and the themes of everyday life. She took her first photography workshop in 2010 with the famed New York street photographer Jay Maisel and he greatly influenced her use of colour, light and gesture. On a photography expedition to Myanmar in 2013 with the legendary photographer Steve McCurry, Anne knew she had found her niche; combing street photography and travel in countries where she feels she has stepped back in time.
Anne's passion for photography is driven by always pushing herself to do better, to learn from experiences and try to produce photographs that truly capture the moment and to successfully convey atmosphere, emotion, and a story.
