about

my name is anna. i'm passionate about pack film, alternative death care, and education. my work is about spaces and what we do with them. i grew up in both western colorado and northern new england so i'm really good at dressing in layers and building controlled fires. 

my hobbies outside of photography include listening to lots of music, reading lots of books, hiking, and going to museums to think about things.

right now i live in washington, dc. you can find me pouring some pretty dope latte art and dragging my friends on walks through the woods.
