When I think of beautiful photographs of infants, the first name that comes to mind is Anne Geddes. Please join me Friday as we launch her latest book of photographs, Beginnings.
A beautiful gift book of more than 100 never-before-published photographs, BEGINNINGS was released worldwide on 10.10.10. Continuing in the tradition that has made her one of the most sought-after and popular photographers in the world, in BEGINNINGS, Anne Geddes presents the simple and elegant elements of nature as we have never seen them before. With her camera, she has conceived a fresh story about the delicate and powerful mystery of new life that will inspire nature lovers just as surely as her images of babies have captured the imaginations of people around the globe. She reveals the intricate beauty of birds’ nests, the delicacy of eggs, and the glorious color hidden inside the tight, unopened petals of a blossom before it blooms. Then, she expands on her visual metaphor to reveal surprising and illuminating juxtapositions of beginnings in floral and human forms.
Once again, Anne Geddes draws our eye to celebrate those treasures worth nurturing and protecting. Told in a language of love that is understood by so many cultures and people of all ages, BEGINNINGS is sure to transcend boundaries, as her other internationally bestselling books have done.
What Anne has to say about Beginnings:
“2 years ago, I had an epiphany of sorts; thinking that I was going to retire…
I went to an exhibition of Bird’s nests and they stopped me in my tracks.
The emotional response I had to the nests was overwhelming!
Everything started again. Everything just kind of came back and I felt really inspired
to start photographing again.
I think it was just that whole mothering instinct at work; everything about
(the nests) was just so nurturing and I remember walking out,
getting in the car and phoning my husband Kel and saying
‘I need to do another book’!”
