about annie

Annie Taylor is a photographer (BFA uOttawa '15) and architecture graduate (M.Arch Carleton University '19) from Ottawa, Ontario now based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. 

Through photography, she is interested in exploring visual narratives between built and natural environments. She gravitates towards vernacular architecture and recurring themes of home and place - while questioning the ordinary and routine of how people live in and make the spaces they inhabit their own. 

Annie holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Ottawa. She has exhibited her artwork provincially, is a Laureate of the Imagining Canada's Future: Future Challenges Grant awarded by the University of Ottawa Office of Undergraduate Research and the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council (May 2015) and received the Edmund and Isobel Ryan Visual Arts Scholarship in Photography (April 2015). Her artwork can be found in private collections across Canada. 

She recently completed a Master of Architecture at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University where she experimented with integrating her knowledge of photography with rigorous architectural design exploration. Her career aspirations are to continue exploring the boundaries, intersections, and possibilities between art, photography, and design.
