Photography at The Lost City Museum in Octobercwilliams@meta-logix.net
Anne’s boundless love of the desert southwest shows in her photographs of ancient petroglyphs, barns and flowers.
Anne was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and spent most of her adult life in New York City. Anne’s interest in photography goes back to a Christmas gift from her grandmother, a Brownie Hawkeye camera. After retiring from a career in the insurance business, Anne moved to Las Vegas. Moving to the area placed her closer to the magnificent desert she had only briefly visited in the past.
In the past, Anne captured scenes of nature using 35mm film cameras but has since switched to digital. “I like to have instantaneous gratification and total control over my work from the release of the shutter to the final print”.
Anne believes photography is all about light “I can stand in one place for numerous minutes waiting for a shift in the light. Or I may be driving aimlessly and suddenly see marvelous rays of light striking the early morning earth”.
Anne is a member of many prestigious local artists groups including the Boulder City Art Guild and the Nevada Camera Club.
