Geddes gets personal
Anne Geddes, the world’s most famous baby photographer, has published an autobiography documenting her 25-year career. Labor of Love is a personal departure for Geddes, whose previous best-selling books have been pictorial collections. “The aim of A Labor of Love is to give the reader an insight into my work, my photographic images, and also to have them feel as if they know more about the person behind those images,” says Geddes on her website. “Photographing babies exclusively has been extremely rewarding and in many ways challenging. At this stage in my life and career, I feel the need to share the motivation for my life’s work.” Geddes was born in Queensland, Australia, but has been based in Auckland for most of her life. Her previous books, such as Down in the Garden and Pure, have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
