Anne Geddes, the photographer behind iconic baby photos from the 1990s, reveals what they look like today.
Australian-born photographer, Anne Geddes, is one of the world’s most respected and well-known photographers.
As her website notes, “Geddes creates images that are iconic, award winning and beloved. Like no photographer before, her imagery singularly captures the beauty, purity and vulnerability of children embodying her deeply held belief that each and every child must be ‘protected, nurtured and loved.'”
“If, for some reason, you do not know Anne Geddes’ name,” Huffington Post reports, “you most certainly would recognize her work. She did those photos of babies dressed up as bunnies and cabbages and gingerbread men and other harder-to-distinguish objects. She did those adorable yet slightly unsettling visions of teeny newborns stuffed inside very large pockets and, once, chilling in a faux amniotic sac with Celine Dion. She made the calendar that hung on your kitchen wall in the late ‘90s and the birthday card you hoped would have $20 inside it, but didn’t.”
My Modern Met reports that Geddes’ newest series of photos, entitled Baby, Look At You Now! “juxtaposes Geddes’ iconic baby portraits from the 90’s with her subjects all grown up.”
Every week in this ongoing series, we’ll be posting one of my early iconic images, with news of what the babies are doing today. So if you were one of those babies and you’d like to take part – I’d love to hear from you at [email protected] Send a favorite recent photo of yourself and tell me a little about what you’re up to today. – XOAnne
