Every year since September 2002, I have exhibited hand printed, film images documenting scenes of and the blocks around the site of the World Trade Center.
From mid-October 2001 to roughly two years later, I drove from my home in Central Pa. to New York City about six times for this project culminating with the images of the "Light Towers."
Now digitally archived, these are the first set of about fourty images for this exhibit. The next set of images will be posted on 9/11/2021 and continue through the end of the month.
"Photographer, Diverse Media Artist, Musician, Video Artist, Teacher, Seeker" are just a few words to describe Annie-hannah through her life-long commitment to visual, diverse media artworks.
Annie-hannah moved to Woodstock, NY from Central Pa. in the fall of 2014 for the love of the landscape, its history and inspiration. Within a very short time, Annie-hannah established herself within the arts community displaying regularly in various locations and galleries in Woodstock.
She has exhibited her works in national and regional juried competitions including, Soho Photo, NYC, Capital Arts Workshop, Washington, DC., and Southern Alleghenies Museum, Loretto, Pa. to name only a few. In 2017, Annie-hannah's photography of the Hudson River was selected for “Undercurrents: The Hudson River as as Metaphor” at the Dorky Museum on SUNY New Paltz campus. Her images focused on "The Hudson as Meditation" and reflected her walks on the banks of the Hudson over a 30+year period.
"As an artist working with a wide range of diverse materials, the final works reflect an aura of spontaneity through the process of "listening" to the "spirit" of the subject or materials and following their lead rather than forcing my own preconceived notions upon the finished works."
View Annie-hannah's diverse material works integrating art and function:
As a musician, Annie-hannah has produced multiple in-house, self-published recordings of her spontaneous, spirit-lead keyboard instrumental music.
Most recently, Annie-hannah has released three CDs: “Biidaaban:Dawn Comes,” “Creek&Clove” and “kaaters kill rune” all inspired by her years-long residency in Palenville, NY home of the Hudson River School of Art and the artists who were themselves inspired by ancient spirit of the clove and surrounding mountain region.
These CDs blend keyboards and diverse percussion works such as chimes, Tibetan singing bowls, a low bass “A” flute and a unique Aztec-Mayan “Fifth Drone” flute all designed by Charlie Mato-Toyela of Blue Bear Flutes, Alabama.
“It is my hope that through my music peoples of all traditions (or non-tradition), faiths (or non-faiths) will come to know a deeper sense of connection to themselves, to others and most importantly to The Creator and our place in Creation.”
Annie-hannah is available to perform at sacred ceremonies or gatherings - solo or with other like-spirited musicians.
