About Anna Daedalus
A longtime Pacific Northwesterner, Anna Daedalus lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She holds a B.A. in Spanish Literature from Reed College, and both studied and taught at the Chicago Photography Center. A multi-disciplinary artist, Anna works primarily in photography and frequently collaborates with poets, writers and videographers. She has published numerous collaborative artist’s books, including over fifty under her two imprints Disposable Books and Marchland Strand with Leo Daedalus from 1997–2013.
From 2011 to 2013 she was a member of 13 Hats, a collective of Portland visual artists and writers who came together for two years to pursue interdisciplinary work and creative dialogue through collaboration. In 2013 Anna was awarded a project grant from Regional Arts & Culture Council for a new photographic series in collaboration with Kerry Davis.
Her large-scale photographic prints have been shown in Portland and Seattle, and her work can be found in various collections, including the John Wilson Special Collections at the Multnomah County Library in Oregon and the Beinecke Library at Yale University.
