Annie la Photographe
Participates in 1 Session

Annie France Noël is a queer Acadian visual artist, photographer, and cultural worker. Her practice observes intimate and vulnerable aspects of the human experience through various photographic and interdisciplinary approaches.

After taking several photography classes at the Université de Moncton (2007 - 2010), Annie France supported their artistic practice while working as a freelance photographer, a service industry professional, and eventually as a cultural worker. She does not hold a degree and considers herself community-taught. Following many years of slow-paced practice, experiential learning, and finding their visual voice, Annie France is today recognized as a noteworthy contemporary lens-based artist through their rich albeit budding career history.

Her practice pivoted from portraiture and investigating the inner macrocosms of others to self-exploration following the birth of her first and only child in 2019. Coming from a place of vulnerability and frailty, she yields to the complex nature of the early parenthood experience and unveils its many unmentionables in heartbreaking confessions via experimental approaches.

Annie France is a dedicated member of the cultural communities she engages with, both at regional and national levels. She notably sits on the Board of Directors of CARFAC National, chairs the Board of Directors of the Aberdeen Cultural Centre (where her studio is located), and is the artistic and administrative director of the artist-run centre Galerie Sans Nom.

Originally from Galaget (Caraquet), she currently lives, mothers, and works as an uninvited guest on the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples / Moncton NB.
