Anne Launcelott

“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries”, Aldous Huxley (1884-1963), British Author Anne is a travel and street portrait photographer. Her portraits tend to be environmental: They are taken in the subject’s usual environment and illustrate the subject’s life and surroundings. To discover the rhythm of life in a new place one must experience it. Anne does this by exploring the back streets observing and recording everyday life, trying to capture the personalities of the inhabitants. Behind every photograph there is a story, and people, places, and objects remain a central theme of her work.
Anne received her first camera as a birthday present from her father at the age of 14 and has had a passion for photography ever since. Anne has been in group exhibitions throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, and South America. Her numerous solo exhibitions in Halifax have been very successful and she had her first major solo international exhibition in Rybinsk, Russia in 2018 which was very well received. Many photographs have been chosen for publication in books, magazines, and newspaper articles. In May 2022 Anne’s photography book, which she authored, titled “We Are Nova Scotia” was published by SSP Publications. The 100 portraits for this book are a collection of intimate portraits taken during the height of the pandemic.
