Anna Fox. Back to the Village (1999-2008)

Anna Fox. Back to the Village (1999-2008)

The Hyman Collection has an important group of thirty exhibition prints from this major series.

Back to the Village is an ongoing photographic project observing the uniquely English rituals that take place in the picturesque villages of Hampshire. On her return to Selborne (after moving out of London in 1999) Anna Fox became more aware of how significant the various events that take place in the countryside can be. Citing the 19th Century photographer Sir Benjamin Stone as an influence, Fox has created a collection of photographs documenting the customs - such as nativity plays, Halloween festivities and Guy Fawkes night - that take place in local villages.
