Anne Geddes is an Australian photographer who specializes in photographing newborns. After a difficult childhood on a cattle farm, she dropped out of school at 17. Later, she married and moved to Hong Kong for her husband’s work. There she taught herself photography and built up a small portfolio. Back in Australia, she started her own studio from her garage. In this program, we learn about her love of babies, what she thought was wrong about traditional baby photography, and what she considers the most important element in an image: the emotional content.
