Baby Talk
The Anne Geddes phenomenon

An infant curled within a seashell, on a bed of flowers, or its mother’s body. With her distinct style and sensitive compositions, Anne Geddes has become one of the world's most widely known and loved photographers, celebrated for her unique take on infancy and parenthood in soft, characterful, vibrant portraits.

Like no photographer before, Geddes strives to capture the beauty, purity, and vulnerability of early childhood and to embody within an image her deeply held belief that each and every child must be “protected, nurtured and loved.” Since its inception in 1992, The Geddes Philanthropic Trust has designated significant funds from the range of Anne Geddes products to help prevent child abuse and neglect in countries around the world.

This Geddes retrospective draws from access to the photographer’s complete archive, reaching back to the late 1980s. With many previously unseen images as well as a sticker motif, it honors not only a whimsical and endearing aesthetic but its underlying philosophy of care for the young and vulnerable and for the future of mankind.

Editorial Reviews

“Anne Geddes - often dubbed the Annie Leibovitz of baby photography - has been snapping iconic images of newborns for nearly four decades, selling 18 million books around the globe and seeing her work appear on greetings cards for every occasion. From a grinning baby dressed as a bee in a flower to a tiny newborn dozing as a koala in a tree, the Australian-born snapper’s knack for capturing the vulnerability - and adorableness - of babies is captured in the new retrospective of her career.”
