Artist Biography

Anne Piessens is a Boston-based fine art photographer whose work explores nature’s distinctive forms, as well as our relationship to the landscapes around us.


Her newest series, Meliorations, imagines ways to undo the damage that humans have inflicted on the natural world, and incorporates different media such as drawing inks and embroidery thread. Past projects include Things that Look Like Other Things, a tongue-in-cheek search for meaning in nature’s found objects, and In the Middle of Something, a portrait series about the tween years. 


Anne Piessens studied photography with college instructors Emmet Gowin and Steve Fitch. After a hiatus, she began shooting and exhibiting in 2017. Her work has been shown at Concord Art and The Cambridge Art Association, MA; The SE Center for Photography, SC; Praxis Photo Arts Center, MN; and Photo Place Gallery, VT.
