Anne Geddes: Small World

by Holly Stuart Hughes (Author), Anne Geddes (Photographer)

(Taschen America)

 

Anne Geddes _ Small World

 

“An infant curled within a seashell, on a bed of flowers, or its mother’s body. With her distinct style and sensitive compositions, Anne Geddes has become one of the world’s most widely known and loved photographers, celebrated for her unique take on infancy and parenthood in soft, characterful, vibrant portraits.

Like no photographer before, Geddes strives to capture the beauty, purity, and vulnerability of early childhood 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 draws from access to the photographer’s complete archive, reaching back to the late 1980s. With many previously unseen images as well as a sticker motif, 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 [hu]mankind.”
