Anna Newman is an award winning filmmaker and documentary photographer, specializing in the stories of artists and innovators.
With a background in computer engineering (DreamWorks Animation, Adobe) and an MA in music, Anna finds ways to honor both the technical and the artistic aspects of image making. Anna’s photographs have been published in the online edition of the New York Times and regional media. Her films screened at Sundance New Frontier, Cinequest, numerous indie film festivals and conventions, and curated museum exhibits in the US and abroad.
Born in Santa Cruz, raised in rural Central California, and educated in Silicon Valley, Anna’s imagery explores the complex and often subtle relationships between people and their innovations, the natural environment, and history. Most of her work includes an element of time, represented either through architecture and geology or the inclusion of vintage or antique artifacts, often found. Through photographs she engages the viewer around what once made and now makes community.
Anna is currently pursuing a MFA in Visual Art at University of Nevada, Reno. She lives in the Tahoe area with her husband and a very opinionated cat, The Biscuit.
