Best-known for her behind-the-scenes stills of Hollywood films, Mikki Ansin has travelled the world as a photojournalist for over 40 years. Her photos have been published in the International Herald Tribune, The New York Times, The London Times, TIME, LIFE, People and Paris Match.
Ansin’s career started as a photojournalist specializing in people, politics and film. Her career launched in the mid 1970s, when her photo of the little-known presidential candidate Jimmy Carter ran as a double-page spread in the New York Times Sunday magazine. Since then, Mikki has worked for and photographed the Kennedys, and worked with Merchant Ivory Productions, Gamma/Liaison Agency and Getty Images. She has also lectured at the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art and in Aix-en-Provence and Florence, Italy. Her work is collected by The Bibliotheque Nationale (Paris), the Kennedy Library, the United States Information Agency (USIA) and numerous private collectors. Some of her awards and achievements in photography include the American Society of Media Photographers “Best of 2012,” a CINE Golden Eagle, first place stills at the Deauville Film Festival, honors in the PS3 Prix de le Photographie Paris and a White House appointment to the Board of Governors of the USO.
