Anne Larsen, whose career spans more than three decades, worked as a successful photographer for one of the largest commercial studios in Copenhagen, Denmark. In 1994 she moved to the United States to pursue a career in fine–art photography.
Anne's intimate still life images and delicate photographs of the natural environment, all made with a 4x5–inch view camera or medium format camera, share a common luminosity and elegance. Her hand made silver gelatin prints are distinguished by their impeccable execution and tonal subtlety. Anne has assisted and taught on workshops instructed by James Baker, Morley Baer, Ruth Bernhard, Charles Cramer, Philip Hyde, Ray McSavaney, and John Sexton.
Her prints are in numerous private and public collections around the world. Her images have been included in exhibitions at The Ansel Adams Gallery, the Susan Spiritus Gallery, and the Alinder Gallery in California, as well as the Sun To Moon Gallery in Dallas, Texas, and the Timeless Gallery in Beijing, China.
In 2007 she was awarded Third–Place Fine Art Still Life in the Pilsner Urquell International Photography Awards. In 2018 Anne was the winner in both the Still Life and Abstract professional categories in the 12th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Along with concentrating on her own photographic work, Anne assists her husband, John Sexton, in all aspects of his photography.
Legendary photographer Ruth Bernhard said this about Anne Larsen's photographs:
"Anne Larsen has the ability to transform the commonplace into the unforgettable. Her beautiful photographs are made from the heart."
Anne lives with her husband John Sexton in Carmel Valley, California.
Anne Larsen's photographs are represented by The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park, California and Timeless Gallery in Beijing, China.
About the Image
The image, Trees in Snowstorm, Yosemite Valley, was made in February 2011. It was an exceptional winter storm. Every morning we woke up to a winter wonder landscape. It was so beautiful. Normally I work with my 4x5 view camera, but on this particular late afternoon at El Capitan Meadow it was snowing so heavily with big wet snowflakes that I decided to use my Hasselblad. The camera was wrapped in a large Ziploc bag, with a cutout for the lens. I took one meter reading, set the aperture and shutter speed accordingly, and went out in the blowing snow. Once the roll of film was exposed, I would return to the van, reload the film magazine, check the exposure with my spotmeter, and rush back out looking for more images.
The image Trees in Snowstorm, Yosemite Valley, is approximately 6-1/2 x 6-3/8", personally printed by me, processed to current archival standards, signed, numbered, mounted, and matted to 14 x 17” on 100 percent rag museum board. This print is offered in a Limited Edition of 75 numbered silver gelatin prints, plus 10 artist proofs. When the edition is sold out no further prints will be made for sale in any size.
