@laddcommaanna                   Meet the Artist: Anna Ladd
UTGT:When did you get into your photography?
Ladd: I started learning and playing around with taking pictures when I was 14! I took my first darkroom class when I was 17 which allowed me to see photography as a hands-on, fine art medium and that’s when I fell in love with it

UTGT: Whats the hardest part of doing what you do?
@laddcommaanna: I’ll spend a lot of time with a material or an idea and it just isn’t working. It’s hard to get bad criticism and give up on something, but something better usually emerges from it so I just have to get through the “wow I suck” phase and rethink things. Also, digital printers. Digital printers are the hardest thing in the world.

Meet the Artist: Anna Ladd  UTGT: Where do you find most your inspiration? Anna: I am inspired mostly by my navigation of adulthood. That’s the main thing that’s on my mind right now. Everything is sort of a self portrait in that sense, it’s me examining myself and trying to figure things out through making work.
