Annie Hesse began doing professional freelance photography using and experimenting with black and white film stock to take documentary photographs of the culture and lifestyle she was involved in. In particular, she photographed Punk Rock banks, local and visiting, both on and off stage.
She has since made the transition to color and digital photography, focusing on abstract close ups found in nature and the material world as well as being inspired by her extensive travels.
As a photographer, who is visually impaired, she has become more aware of her objectives and intentions over time and with experience. She now uses color and close-ups to present her perspective of the world. Color, shape, texture and contrast are the key elements in her photographs, not to mention the physical distance between the camera and subject.
Annie Hesse is curious about the mysterious and complex world around her that her camera enables her to see.
