Anne Harrington A native of Arlington, MA, and a graduate of Regis College and the Universities of Maryland and Virginia, Anne (at far right) developed a serious interest in photography beginning in 1997.
During the two years that she taught English at Shanghai University in Shanghai, China (2002-2004), Anne photographed people, places, and life in and around Shanghai. She also had the opportunity to travel and photograph beyond Shanghai. Her trips, frequently on her own, included Hong Kong, Beijing, Xi’an, Guilin, Lijiang, and other less well-known locations. Anne photographed what she saw from the perspective of an expatriate teacher living and working in China. One theme that emerged in her photographs was the impact of a “rising China” on daily life in Shanghai and the disappearing “old” China. Some of these images are featured in her current exhibit at Watertown Library.
