Poetic Imagery Fine Art Photography by Anne Silver
Morning in the Garden of Memory
A series of photos that is an homage to American photographer Joyce Tenneson. All of these photos are scans of negatives that were reclaimed from Fuji FP100-C peel apart film for Polaroid cameras. The negatives are washed with a bleach cleaner to remove the opaque black packing. It is the bleach cleaner that yields the wild, unexpected colors.
It's the Wind We Remember
This portfolio is created on medium format film with a Bronica Sq-A camera from the 1980's. All film is developed by me.
The series is loosely based on the lyrics from the American musical group, Iron and Wine. It is an exploration of nostalgia, grief, beauty, loss, healing, light, wisdom, and tiny moments of stillness.
It's the Wind We Remember-- part I
On your wings we are carried to the sea
A message from the universe...
Some whispers around the trees
When I breathed through your body...
Stray light finds its way to us all
Stray light finds its way to us all-- part II
My Wild Nature: Connection with the sacred
Hints of memory and dream,
of what used to be,
on the verge of disappearing....
And re-emerging into the wild.
Safe in my little nest
A world of discovery
From mystery into mystery
The seasons of a woman's life
In my fever dream
Waves of reverence
Words are like wings
The caress of light, the kiss of shadow
The weightlessness of wonder
My morning treasure
A portfolio series exploring loss, healing, and the reclamation of feminine sexuality using the Jezebel myth as its poetic device.
Waiting for the moment
Reconciliation with the darkness
Where she used to be
Last night she came to me in my dreams
A series about the sacred feminine and my connection to nature

Ma nature sauvage
My wild nature
Roots and wings
The sensuality of flowers
Portrait of a woman
Muses at the creek
Inspired by summer light, silky, creek waters slipping past our ankles, and three beautiful models... and a whole bunch of red balloons, just for added twist.
The three graces
Up and away...
Slowly sinking in
Exploration of Silence
Still life photography, polaroid sx70 style.
A meditation on the changing seasons and the poetry therein.
A summer romance
The sweetness of a kiss
Hope springs eternal
In the fullness of time
Diptychs, triptychs, collages
