Anna Fox. Cockroach Diairies and other stories

As part of our ongoing commitment to British photography we are delighted to have made one of our biggest acquisitions: the entire Anna Fox exhibition, Cockroach Diaries and Other Stories. Curated by Impressions Gallery, this touring exhibition led to Anna Fox's nomination for the prestigious Deutsche Borse Photography Prize in 2010 and includes many of her most famous bodies of work.

We have also acquired the entire framed exhibition set of prints from Anna Fox's Resort exhibition of pictures made at Butlins in Bognor Regis which premiered at Pallant House Gallery in 2012.

These purchases, added to our existing holdings of Fox's work, make this the most comprehensive collection of her work in the world.
