Annette LeMay Burke is a Northern California native who currently lives in the heart of Silicon Valley. She is interested in how we interact with the natural world. Her latest project, Fauxliage, explores how technology is modifying our landscapes, often with idiosyncratic results.
She has a background in earth science, tech, and design, which influences her work today. Her images have a strong graphical aesthetic, often with clean lines and vibrant colors. She examines themes of solitude, introspection, and patterns and processes created by man and nature. She is always on the lookout for the unusual and whimsical.
In 2017, Annette was one of 100 photographers selected for the CENTER Santa Fe Reviews. She was also named in Photolucida's Critical Mass Top 200.
In 2013, Annette’s Cuba photos were chosen by Santa Fe Workshops for their Fall Catalog cover and advertising campaigns both on-line and in print.
Annette is a member of Maverick Photographers, a diverse collective of documentary, fine art, commercial, and philanthropic photographers working in the Bay Area.
The name Atelier LeMay is a nod to her French heritage. Atelier means studio or workshop, and LeMay is her maiden name.
