Tara Wells at Visitors

Q & A — Questions & Annie France

Q & A — Questions & Annie France

With Mother’s Day just around the corner on May 10th, we corresponded with Annie France Noël, artist and new mom, to talk to her about her motherhood journey, art practice, and current outlook, during this period of sheltering in place. Annie France is Acadian, lives in Moncton, New Brunswick, with her partner, Blake Michel Morin, and daughter, Margot. She is the Artistic and Administrative Director of Galerie Sans Nom. Her latest body of work, Les Baby Blues, explores intimate and challenging moments she experienced early on in motherhood. Portrait photography is a creative approach used by Annie France in her work to explore vulnerability and issues surrounding intimacy. In Les Baby Blues, Annie France turned the camera towards herself and looked inward.
