Working the South West of England , Annie’s interest in photography was encouraged and developed by her father and grandfather from an early age. Annie’s grandfather was a Journalist /photo journalist with the Bristol Evening World which later became the Bristol Evening Post. Ben Johnson her grandfather worked with the company from the 1930’s until the 1970’s. Annie’s first ‘dark room’ was a blacked out bathroom with a piece of chipboard resting on the bath , a basic enlarger , three plastic trays, a pair of tongs, developer and fixer. This led to Annie processing her own films and producing black and white photographs age 14 . In recent years Annie has rekindled her interest and love of photograph/Art by completing an AS level in Photography in 2010.
Annie is currently working on a project which is influenced by her passion for music. The project ‘North To South ‘ relates to the Northern Soul music scene in the South West. Two further projects Behind Closed Doors and Facing Fifty are projects at development stage.
