Annemarie Heinrich (9 January 1912 – 22 September 2005) was a German-born, naturalized Argentine photographer, specialized in portraits and nudity. She is known for having photographed various celebrities of Argentine cinema, such as Tita Merello, Carmen Miranda, Zully Moreno and Mirtha Legrand; as well as other cultural personalities like Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda and Eva Perón.[1][2][3]

Heinrich was born in Darmstadt and moved to Larroque, Entre Ríos with her family in 1926, fleeing from the First World War.[1] In 1930 she opened her first studio in Buenos Aires.[4] Two years later she moved to a larger studio, and began photographing actors from the Teatro Colón.[2][4] Her photos were also the cover of magazines such as El Hogar, Sintonía, Alta Sociedad, Radiolandia and Antena for forty years.[1][4]

Heinrich is considered one of Argentina's most important photographers.[1][4]
