Artist Bio

Receiving her BFA from Rutgers, Mason Gross School of the Arts class of 2016, Annie Pollock uses photography and collage to further her interests of an ethereal femininity by bringing a playful nature to her images. The content of her work nurtures conversation of female empowerment, showcasing an intimate and inclusive network of subjects ranging from the informative to the satirical, from sexual health to toxic masculinity. Her works are influenced by fashion editorials, and the works of Petra Collins and Ashley Armitage. Annie treats her images with a mixture of natural and studio light to try to create a soft elevated framework to her relatable content. She uses her images to speak to current events while maintaining a soft aesthetic that presents global issues through her unique and whimsical point of view.
