Anne Nielsen earned her B.A. in Art History at Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut. She continued her instruction in art and photography in Sorbonne, Paris and New York University. In 1987 she established Anne Nielsen Photography. She has worked with numerous clients including Johnson & Johnson, Chase Manhattan Bank, Lord & Taylor and March of Dimes. Nielsen has exhibited her work throughout the United States including Adkins Arboretum of the Eastern Shore, Dorchester County Historical Society, Delmarva Discovery Center, The Ward Museum and Queen Anne’s County Arts Council.

She began making images using the wet-plate method from images taken on her wooden reproduction camera. The camera, a large, yet delicate instrument has been fitted with a brass Voigtland lens made in 1864. The method is fascinating, but the combination of the method and the portrait subjects is pure magic. Native Americans of Maryland’s Eastern Shore have worked with Nielsen in bringing this stunning collection of portrait work alive. The four recognized indigenous Native American tribes living on the Eastern Shore are the Accohannock, the Assateague, the Nause Waiwash Band of Indians, and the Pocomoke. Nielsen spent months getting to know tribal elders, leaders and members. She considers her experience as one of a lifetime where she not only forged friendships, but also made an historical record for each group.
