Born and raised in France, Anouk Masson Krantz moved to the United States in the late 1990s. She earned her bachelor's degree and worked at Cartier’s New York corporate office.  Anouk later studied at the International Center of Photography and has developed several notable bodies of work, including Wild Horses of Cumberland Island

Her work has appeared in prominent galleries and earned accolades from the International Photography Awards and International Monochrome Awards. 


There is a universal appeal to island life that requires a detachment from mainstream society; a vacation from the ordinary routines and daily responsibilities that can stifle the spirit and imagination. Through careful use of two key elements, space and perspective, Anouk has captured the magnificent scale of Cumberland Island’s dramatic scenery and breathtaking wildlife as it has never been photographed before. Embracing the island’s raw elements in all of its seasons, she has created a body of work that delivers to the viewer the profound and varied emotions that the island so powerfully inspires. An escape to the idyllic refuge that is Cumberland Island is an epiphany that pays tribute to the phrase “Less is more.”
