Blue Earth is proud to host photographer Annie Marie Musselman presenting “Finding Trust: My Discoveries At A Small Wildlife Sanctuary,” the second in our 2009-2010 lecture series on documentary photography focusing on global environments, social, and cultural issues. Musselman will be speaking in Seattle at the Frye Art Museum on Saturday, January 9 at 2 p.m.

“Finding Trust, the photo essay,” according to Musselman, “began 6 years ago at the Sarvey Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, a small sanctuary 75 miles north of Seattle, Washington where I live and work as a photographer. In 2002 when my mother passed away, I was left looking for something to hold on to, something real to photograph, and found the Sarvey Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Located in the foothills of the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range, it is a place where injured, wild creatures come to finish their journey or start a new one. The photographs I produce document the delicate union that exists between humans and animals. It’s not just the actual places where were our lives often intersect, like a park or forest, but the spaces where our emotions meet. The work documents the infirmed animals’ recovery with a sense of wonder as they heal, hoping to return to the wild forests of the Northwest. I hope to capture the palpable emotions in my photographs because I can’t help but contemplate how much we actually know about each other.”

Musselman received her BFA at Principia College in 1996 after a photography apprenticeship in Marseilles, France. Finding Trust won first place in the 2006 Environmental Photography Invitational and was featured in American Photography 22 and 25. Her work has been exhibited at the Seattle Public Library Downtown, The Photographic Center Northwest in “A Delicate Balance”, The Alice Austen House Museum, NYC 2009 and currently at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Nappa Valley, CA. With the intention of expanding her work with animals, Musselman visited Borneo to study and document endangered orangutans in sanctuaries; this work appeared in Newsweek Aug. 11, 2009. Finding Trust is represented by Redux Pictures, NYC. Musselman’s work can also be seen in several magazines including Outside, Mother Jones, Travel + Leisure, The New York Times, The Fader and National Geographic Adventure.

Tickets available at the door. Free to Blue Earth and Frye members; $10 for non-members; $5 for students with ID.
