Anne Marie Warner is a carpenter's daughter from south suburban Chicago but has lived in Michigan since 2006. She holds a B.A. in English and Journalism from Taylor University. This year two of her photographs were published in Flyway: Journal of Writing & Environment. Just before photographing "Broke Open Tree" she completed an essay collection/memoir (which she sometimes calls her m+essay collection) loosely chronicling a four-year spiritual wandering from the protestant fold of her roots into an anglican practice of faith. To her, "Broke Open Tree" has come to represent that body of work as well as the nation's identity crisis over the past few years. When Anne Marie isn't carting her daughters around town or cooking or riding her bike she documents life from her perch in Kalamazoo.
