Valokuvaaja Anna Geddes tuli 90-luvulla maailmankuuluksi vauvateoksillaan. Hän paljastaa, miltä hänen mallinsa näyttävät nyt.
Huippukuvaaja Anne Geddesin studiossa on käynyt tuhansia vauvoja, jotka ovat esiintyneet kameralle pukeutuneina perhosiksi, kukkasiksi, enkeleiksi ja ampiaisiksi. Sinunkin silmiisi on varmasti osunut näitä kuvia kalentereissa, onnittelukorteissa, postimerkeissä...
Geddes otti kuvat 1990-luvulla, ja yhä 30 vuoden jälkeen ne tunnetaan ympäri maailmaa.
Nyt Geddes on julkaissut Instagramissaan hauskoja kuvapareja, jotka paljastavat, miltä kuvien vauvat näyttävät tänä päivänä.
Elantonsa vauvakuvilla hankkinut Geddes kertoo Huffington Postille, että vastasyntynyt on hänelle edelleen kiinnostava ja kunnioitusta herättävä kuvauskohde.
– Elämän alussa on niin paljon potentiaalia ja puhtautta, Geddes pohtii.
”Muistan päivän 17 vuotta sitten, jolloin kuvasin kolme superpientä identtistä kolmosta.”
Kun vastasyntynyt kasvaa, on kuvaajasta tärkeää muistella aikaa, joka oli niin täynnä mahdollisuuksia. Tuoreen kuvasarjan Geddes kertoo ottaneensa osittain vauvojen – tai siis nykyään aikuisten – itsensä takia.
Tältä vauvat nyt näyttävät:
Jokaisen kuvaparin yhteyteen Geddes on kirjoittanut lauseen Baby look at you now, vapaasti suomennettuna kulta, katso itseäsi nyt.
Hän myös kertoo, millaisia tarinoita kuvattavilla on ollut. Esimerkiksi upeassa mustavalkokuvassa esiintyvät hänen mukaansa kolmoset Jaclyn, Susanna ja Charlee.
– Muistan päivän 17 vuotta sitten, jolloin kuvasin kolme superpientä identtistä kolmosta. Heidän äitinsä Lisa toi heidät kantokopissa, jotka olivat rivissä studioni vastaanotossa, kun saavuin tervehtimään heitä, Geddes muistelee ja kertoo, että kuvassa lapset lepäävät Jack-nimisen herrasmiehen suurilla ja vahvoilla käsillä.
BABIES, LOOK AT YOU NOW! I remember the day 17 years ago when I photographed 3 super tiny identical triplets, Jaclyn, Susanna and Charlee, cradled in the large, craggy and very gentle hands of a gentleman called Jack. Their mother Lisa brought them to the shoot in 3 baby capsules which were all lined up in my studio reception when I went to greet them. Inside were what looked to be 3 sweet little dolls, fast asleep, all wearing identical woolen hats. I don't generally like to play favorites, but this image is certainly one of mine. I always know an image is going to be magical when my hands start shaking as I'm trying to focus ... and it's no mean feat to get 3 babies asleep at the same time (Lisa would definitely vouch for that). I have video of this shoot stored away somewhere so I'll try to find it and do a later post for everyone to see. But look at the girls today - 17 years old and 5'10" - the same height as me by the way! This image was taken the night of their school prom/ball. The girls are all signed with a modeling agency in New Zealand and getting quite a bit of work, which is great news. Susanna (left) is also really interested in photography and make-up artistry. I'm very proud of you girls! Every week in this on-going series we'll be posting one of my early iconic images, with news of what the babies are doing today. So if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part I'd love to hear from you at email@example.com - send a recent photo of yourself and tell me a little about what you're up to today. Oh and by the way, I know you're going to love next week's post too! Have a great day everyone! XO Anne #babies #protectnurturelove #babylookatyounow
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Well good grief - my little "Wet Sparrow" has well and truly flown the nest (or the bird bath to be more precise!) I'm sure many of you remember my first coffee table book "Down in the Garden" (around here we just call it DIG) in which this image of little Tyla featured. I remember the day of this shoot very clearly - how cute the chubby little 6 month old looked in her gorgeous costume. 22 years later and here's Tyla today - and I was thrilled to hear what she's been up to ... plenty it seems! In Tyla's words "I have recently been named in the first ever Rugby Sevens Team to represent New Zealand at the Olympic Games in Rio - something that I am extremely honored and privileged to be a part of. Not only do I get to compete on the world's greatest sporting stage, but I get to do so representing myself, my family and my country". Go Tyla!!!! I can't wait for the Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games to begin because I've met so many incredible athletes from around the world over the past few years and I'm ready to cheer them on! Every week in this ongoing series I'll be posting one of my early iconic images, with news of what the babies are doing today. So if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part - I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send a favorite recent photo of yourself and tell me a little about what you're up to today XOAnne #babylookatyounow #protectnurturelove #babies #peace
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Small is beautiful ... well at least that was the case back in 1997, when I photographed tiny newborn Zac for my butterfly series, which appeared in the 1998 calendar. And here's Zac today, still beautiful (oops sorry Zac - I meant handsome!) but a lot bigger ... he's topped out at 6ft 5 inches! I'm loving this series because I'm constantly amazed to see "my babies" as they are today! From Zac's mother Audrey ... "I remember him being the only 2 week old at the shoot whose outfit was a little short in the legs! Lol. And the arm raised over his head wasn't staged - he posed all by himself! I also learned the BEST method for getting a baby to sleep!" Well we have a few tried and true methods Audrey - after 30 years I think I have quite a few techniques up my sleeve! Zac now lives in Melbourne, Australia and works front-of-house in the same restaurant where his sister Jaime is an Event Co-ordinator. He's also done some modeling (his photo credit RPD Models). Many of you will have seen my plush toys over the years, and one was based on Zac's butterfly image. Audrey told me Zac likes to say he has his own "action figure" which I think is hilarious! Every week in this ongoing series, I'll be posting one of my early iconic images, with news of what the babies are doing today.

BABIES, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Way back in 1994 I photographed Alesha, Chantelle and Kailee, tiny identical triplets, each sitting in a green bucket. I called the image "Pool Party". A lot of people probably thought I'd photographed the same baby 3 times! And I couldn't blame them for thinking that because they also had pretty much identical expressions. Even their mother said sometimes she had trouble telling them apart. They were so sweet sitting there and looking around at each other. Hmmm ... they wouldn't fit in a bucket now that's for sure! Here are the girls today - beautiful 22 year olds! And I notice they all still have those similar expressions 😍😍😍. They have all just completed Commerce degrees at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand (with differing majors - Marketing, HR and Management) and have headed off to Florida to work at Walt Disney World on a Cultural Exchange. Good for you girls and I hope you're loving your summer experience! Every week in this ongoing series I'll be posting one of my early iconic images, with news of what the babies are doing today. So if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part - I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
