Hi, I'm Annie...  

I'm a Chicago-based photojournalist and avid story enthusiast.  I've loved stories all my life - photo essays, novels, movies, you name it.  This was what drove me to embrace photography, but it was my nonprofit work in community development that connected me to photojournalism. 

I believe photography is a way to raise awareness about cultures and social issues, to unite people through the commonality of human experiences.  It's a visual connector that can break through the barriers that may divide us.  And it's important to me to transcend the lens by building sustainable relationships within the communities I photograph.

I work consistently with the Chicago Tribune, Community Empowerment (formerly Art for Health), and LISC Chicago.  My work has been published in the Chicago Tribune, Flint Magazine, and The Week.
