Annan was elected to the Linked Ring in 1894. His father was the important English photographer Thomas Annan.
 
This photograph, taken in 1893 is also known as "Evening Work" in Weston Naef: The Collection of Alfred Stieglitz, we learn the thoughts of Alfred Stieglitz when he was an editor for "The American Amateur Photographer" regarding this photograph: "We have seen but few pictures to equal that called "Labor-Evening" (called erroneously "Toil" in the last number of "The American Amateur Photographer"). The picture breathes of atmosphere, it is a piece of nature itself. We can give it no higher praise". (Biblio. 882, p. 213). (May, 1894 issue)
 
Annan was a contemporary of Stieglitz - he was not only a gifted photographer but also a publisher who made his own copper plates for printing photogravures for himself and the family firm: T & R Annan & Sons. Today, the Annan family is still in business - operating The Annan Gallery (a fine art gallery) at 164 Woodlands Road in Glasgow.
