Quote of the Week by Anne Geddes


“I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.” —Anne Geddes (1956)

Australian photographer Anne Geddes is best known for alluring images of babies and children’s, and their purity and vulnerability. In 1993, inspired by reading bedtime stories to their young daughters, Anne began to envision a fairy tale told through photography, leading to the creation of her first coffee table book, Down in the Garden. Later, she also established the Geddes Philanthropic Trust to raise money for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. She was been awarded Lifetime Membership of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and an Honorary Fellowship with the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers (NZIPP).
