Anne Rearick's humanist vision is documentary in nature, but also uniquely personal. In all of her work, Rearick endeavors to portray and celebrate the full range of day-to-day experience of her subjects. Rearick works over time, often photographing her subjects over the course of years, and in doing so creates lasting bonds with people and place. In many respects, Anne Rearick stands with her subjects instead of in front of them.
Anne is the recipient of numerous grants, fellowships and awards to support her photographic projects, notably a Guggenheim fellowship, the European Mosaique Prize, Fulbright/Annette Kade fellowship and two New England Foundation for the Arts/Mass Cultural Council grants. Recently she was awarded a John Anson Kittredge Fund for the production of Township, her new book on post-apartheid South Africa. Rearick received a Master of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art and has worked as an educator and artist for the past 25 years.
The monograph Anne Rearick's Eye (editioned as Miresicoletea) was published by Editions Atlantica, Paris in 2004. She has recently completed work on a monograph entitled Township, Life after Apartheid and is in the process of securing a publisher with a projected launch date in Winter of 2016.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, and the Centre Nationale de L’Audiovisuel in Luxembourg are among the many public collections that include Rearick's photographs.
Anne Rearick is featured in the upcoming French documentary Devant le Viseur, an homage to French photographer Jean Dieuzade as seen through the eyes of three contemporary photographers working in the humanist tradition.
Anne Rearick's photographs are distributed internationally by Agence Vu, in Paris.
