Lives and works Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Anne Ferran has been exhibiting since the 1980s when her landmark series Scenes on the Death of Nature established her as one of Australia’s leading photographic artists. In the mid 1990s she began working with the often meagre residues of Australian colonial past, paying particular attention to the lives of women and children.

“I might start with a museum collection or an archive or a site, but it’s less the history I’m interested in than the historical record and how it comes down to us. Especially I’m drawn to the gaps, for what else they reveal.”
