The Anne Geddes phenomenon
Baby as bunny, baby as sunflower, babies upon a carpet of feathers. With her unique portraits of infants, Anne Geddes has become one of the world’s most widely known and loved photographers. Her portfolio has become a brand in itself, with posters, puzzles, apps, calendars, and clothing items all inspired by her baby photography.
Like no photographer before, Geddes strives to capture the beauty, purity, and vulnerability of young children and to embody within an image her deeply held belief that each and every child must be “protected, nurtured and loved.” Since its inception in 1992, The Geddes Philanthropic Trust has designated significant funds from the range of Anne Geddes products to help prevent child abuse and neglect in countries around the world.
This Geddes retrospective offers access to her complete archive, reaching back to the late 1980s. With many previously unseen images, it honors not only a whimsical and endearing aesthetic but its underlying philosophy of care for the young and vulnerable, and for the future of mankind.
