In celebration of National Women’s History Month, PCNW presents three local photographers who’ve focused on extended long term projects.
Anna Mia Davidson has exhibited her photographs both nationally and internationally. When she is not working on her own photographic projects, Anna Mia Davidson works for many different international news and magazine publications such as Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Associated Press, Reader’s Digest, AARP and The International Herald Tribune as well as various commercial clients. In this talk Davidson will share imagery from her recent monograph, Cuba: Black and White, recently published by Steidl in 2015.
Claire Garoutte is an Assistant Professor and director of Photography at Seattle University. She taught at the Photographic Center Northwest for 18 years and was the Director of Education from 1998-2006. Claire is the author of Matter of Trust (1996, Konkursbuch, Germany) and co-author with Anneke Wambaugh of Crossing the Water: A Photographic Path to the Afro-Cuban Spirit World (2007, Duke University Press, Durham, SC). She has worked extensively in Cuba since 1994 and her work has been exhibited internationally. Garoutte will share recent videos she made in Cuba and related imagery.
Annie Marie Musselman is working on a project called For the Innocent; this work documents the lives of animals in specific sanctuaries around the world to raise awareness of the fragility and beauty of endangered/indicator species – animals which if saved, would save countless other species as well. Annie’s work can be seen in The New Yorker, National Geographic Magazine, Audubon, Harpers, Wired, Travel + Leisure, Mother Jones and Newsweek among others. Musselman will share work that she shot in Syria as well as her new project, Wolf Haven.
