“I’m delighted to join such an important and forward-thinking agency at such an exceptional time for photography and I look forward to building new funding partnerships and enterprise initiatives that can mirror the high impact Photoworks achieves through its outstanding annual programme.
This is a great time to join Photoworks: the Brighton Photo Biennial in 2016 and the inaugural Jerwood/Photoworks Awards this year are just two of the fantastic initiatives ahead offering real opportunities for investors to support exceptional artists’ work in, and new audiences’ engagement with, photography.”
Photoworks Director, Celia Davies adds

Anna’s expertise, experience and determination are a great addition to the Photoworks team. We’ll build on our achievements to date, lever in greater resources to support our work and create exceptional new projects for audiences to participate in.”
