Anne Geddes
Anne Geddes (born September 1956) is an Australian-born photographer, clothing designer and businesswoman who now lives and works in New Zealand. She is well-known for her stylised depictions of babies and motherhood.
In most of her work, babies and/or young children are dressed as fictitious characters such as fairies and fairytale creatures, flowers, or animals like bunnies.
Her work is extremely idealized; babies in her photographs are almost always sleeping or staring blankly into space, as if still in the womb. She has been very successful; her books have been published in at least fifty countries. According to Amazon.com she has sold more than 11 million books and 15 million calendars.
