Anna Maria Antoinette D’Addario explores forms of storytelling combining traditional documentary modes with photographic art practice. She is dedicated to the expression of social, environmental and humanitarian issues.

Her current work revolves around the investigation and resurrection of memory and the traces left behind in people and place.

Anna exhibits regularly and her work is part of various private and public collections such as the National Library of Australia and the State Library of NSW. She is a regular contributor to The New York Times and her work has been produced broadly in publications such as The New York Times Magazine, Vogue UK, The Guardian, Vogue Italia, Internazionale, Il Sole 24 Ore and The Sydney Morning Herald. Anna has received various nominations and awards for her work, most recently the recipient of the 2019 Photolux Photoboox Award for her artist's book project, Farewell Angelina.

A recent MFA Graduate from Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney, she also works as an educator participating in programs at various academic institutions and art based organisations.

Over the past years she has been committed to public arts projects and to the support of practitioners in the field as a curator, photo editor and deputy director of the Sydney based Reportage Festival. In 2013 and 2014 she curated and produced numerous exhibitions, events and educational workshops for Reportage. Anna was fundamental in the organisation and curation of the 2013 Reportage Censored outdoor installation exhibition in Hyde Park Sydney that created a conversation with the general public about the nature of censorship and the value cultural events have for individuals in Australia. Alongside this she has written content, co-edited diverse publications and continues to work as a photo editor and curator for projects and specific practitioners.

Anna is a founding member of the Australian collective Lumina.
