Her work is currently featured in Gente di Fotografia (Italy) and has also been published in Photoworld (China), F-Stop Magazine, Slate Magazine/Behold, Shots Magazine, Photo District News, The Portfolio Review, CNN Photos, and Black + White. Anne is a PhotoLucida Critical Mass 2012 and 2013 Top 50 and a 2014 Clarence John Laughlin Award finalist and Honorable Mention. She is represented by the Catherine Couturier Gallery in Houston.
