Takes photos and drinks tea

"I am interested in the disquiet of space and place that would normally be a cacophony of urban life, noise and movement. I have a fascination with the fog, the mist, the smog; the general desaturation of a location normally associated with London city living, interspersed with life as a railway worker and having grown up with 35mm, medium format and instant film formats."

Anne likes to capture everyday life in one way – in the way that humans see and perceive it. Bordering on the edge of quirky, the big picture is one thing, but so are the details, and she feels it’s part of the process to leave no stone unturned; she adopts this practice in all her creative pursuits, as well as with her own life.

Born and raised in London, England, she craves the outdoors and the English Countryside. However, she also has strong ties with what is perceived as 'home' and is interested in domesticated spaces; generally everything to do with documenting life itself though all mediums. The want to preserve personal memories that she is so terrified of losing is what drives her to do what she does today.
