Andréanna Seymore captures slices of life of everyday people and illuminates them in ways that prompt the viewer to think about what is occurring beyond the four corners of the photograph. Often described as documentary in style, Andreanna’s work is actually well choreographed. Through specific direction she is able to create photographic moments that seem natural or in motion.
A seasoned photographer with over twenty years of professional experience, Andréanna has shot for numerous editorial publications and has been invited to participate in group shows throughout the United States. Her professional experience has included numerous publications in American and international publications including Blender, Bloomberg Businessweek, Discover, Fortune, Life, Marie Claire, Mother Jones, Newsweek, New York Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, Teen People, O: The Oprah Magazine, Rizzoli, U.S. News & World Report, Wired, Working Mother, among others. She has been assigned to shoot newsmakers from Bill Gates and Linda McMahon to Zach Galifianakis and Taylor Swift.
Her first monograph Scars and Stripes: The Culture of Modern Roller Derby was published by Schiffer Books in October 2014. Andréanna was also featured in the book 25 Under 25: Up and Coming American Photographers, (cover and interior) published in 2003 by Powerhouse and the foreword written by Lauren Greenfield. In 2017 Andreanna’s images from the book, Scars and Stripes the Culture of Modern Roller Derby was acquired by The Smithsonian National Museum of American History in the Sport History Collections of the Division of Culture and Arts.
