EXHIBITION: New England through a Swedish Eye: photographer Annelie Connolly
Influenced by a childhood spent in the countryside of Sweden photographer Annelie Connolly is drawn to subjects that spark those warm memories. Be it the worn wood of a New England barn, the rusty metal of an old truck, or the glass of a vintage jar, it is decidedly the feeling of history and time that comes through so clearly in each photo.

Born and raised in the picturesque county of Botkyrka just outside of Stockholm, local photographer Annelie Connolly has long had a passion for capturing beautiful nature in photographs. While she still likes to capture images of thousand-year-old churches and farmland on visits to Sweden, Annelie’s photography is now focused on her adopted hometown of Stow, Massachusetts and its surroundings.
Annelie graduated from high school in Tumba, Sweden. Like many Swedes, she then traveled extensively across Europe and the United States — always with camera in hand.
In the 1990s, Annelie immigrated to the United States after marrying a Massachusetts resident who was then serving in the Marines. During her time as a “Marine Wife,” Annelie lived in California and Washington, D.C. Eventually, Annelie enrolled at Wellesley College to complete her studies and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2001.
Since 2001, Annelie has been raising her two boys in Stow and pursuing her passions of art and photography. She has taken photography and framing courses, photographed local events for the Stow Independent, and created a blog site called “New England As I See It.”
