The Arts at Tyler
The Tyler Gallery is pleased to present the photography of Anne Savedge. For a number of years, Savedge has been photographing people involved in dance and other movement through space. Her fascination with capturing movement began with belly dancers and now includes ethnic dancers, modern dancers, ballroom dancers, acrobats, and twirling monks. Savedge uses in-camera techniques and digital processing to capture the energy and excitement of a performance in images.
“My goal is to use my camera and digital technology to give the viewer the same feeling that I experience.”
In contrast to the idea of the photographic “truth,” Anne Savedge seeks “what may be, not what is.” She uses tools like Photoshop to combine and transform the images she takes with her camera. Her goal is to create a different dimension with her work using colors, objects, reflections, lights, movement, and people. Savedge considers travel to be an important part of her artistic practice both in producing her images and exhibiting them.
In addition to her many exhibitions closer to home, her work has been shown in places such as Korea, China, and Brazil.
Savedge has been an adjunct professor at John Tyler Community College teaching digital photography since 2011.
