Anna Fox

Anna Fox is one of the most acclaimed British photographers of the last twenty-five years and is Professor of Photography at the University of the Creative Arts, Farnham.

Working in colour, Fox first gained attention for Work Stations: Office Life in London (1988), a study of office culture in Thatcher's Britain, originally commissioned by Camerawork and The Museum of London.

Other projects have included The Village (1992), a multi-media collaboration with the writer Val Williams, examining the experiences of rural women, and Friendly Fire, which records the leisure activity of paint-balling in the manner of war reportage.

More recent publications include Cockroach Diary and My Mother's Cupboards and My Father's Words (2000), which deal with autobiographical narratives and were designed as miniature, limited edition books.

A major monograph, Anna Fox Photographs 1983 - 2007, was published by Photoworks in 2007, the same year in which Fox was included in the Tate Gallery's major exhibition, How We Are. Photographing Britain.

Cockroach Diaries & Other Stories, a major retrospective, opened at Impressions Gallery, Bradford in 2008 then toured to the Winchester Gallery and Ffotogallery, Cardiff, 2009. It showed autobiographic narratives that combined photographic evidence with frustrated diary entries. This retrospective led to Fox being nominated for the prestigious Deutsche Borse photography prize in 2010.

More recently Resort I and Resort II depict family and adult holidays at Butlins holiday camp in Bognor, Sussex.

The Hyman Colection has the most definitve collection of Anna Fox's works in the world.
