Our second castaway during the Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 was British photographer Anna Fox, whose work has been widely exhibited and published internationally since the 1980s.

In 2010 she was nominated for the Deutsche Borse Photographic Prize, she’s also a Professor of photography at the University of the Creative Arts in Farnham.

Initially Anna was a part of the wave of British documentary photographers who came to¬†prominence¬†in the nineteen eighties and nineties. Other colour documentary photographers in this movement included Paul Graham and Martin Parr, but since then Anna’s work has become increasingly personal, at times functioning as a form of diary.

In the 2007 Photoworks monograph of Anna Fox’s work, Val Williams wrote; “For Anna Fox, documentary photography may also be a kind of autobiography, an intense peering into her own life, as reflected through photography’s idiosyncratic mirror.”
