Anna Rutherford is a Masterton-based family and lifestyle photographer who specializes in working with families with young children. She uses natural light and familiar surroundings for her images.
Her photography documentary project ‘Masterton & Me’ – in which the artist takes to the streets to both meet her subjects and to exhibit – is currently on display near the Wairarapa Building Society (WBS) on Queen & Park Streets, Masterton. The project premiered at the Block Party 2017 and the series is held in the Collection of Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History.
