April 17, 2019/by Anne Belmont

As a nature photographer specializing in flower photography, Anne’s passion lies in capturing the beauty of flowers and other botanical subjects up-close. It is the small, often unnoticed details that draw Anne to her subjects. It is her belief that if we slow down and look at nature in a more contemplative way, we will find subjects that convey impact and emotion, causing the eye to linger a little longer. A life-long involvement in the arts and a first career as an art therapist have shaped the way that she views art and the creative process and have reinforced her belief in the healing power of both art and nature in our lives.

Anne lives in the Chicago area and her favorite place to photograph is the beautiful Chicago Botanic Garden, a few miles from her home. She was commissioned by the Garden to do a solo exhibition of her orchid photography for the 2015-2017 Orchid Shows and has exhibited her work in other venues. Anne is a staff member and presenter for Out of Chicago Photography, where she teaches flower photography and leads workshops. She partners with Lensbaby to spread the love and creativity of their lenses.
