Anna Fox and KarenKnorr, two of Britain’s leading documentary photographers, have constantly pushed the envelope when it comes to what photography can accomplish and what constitutes the documentary style. Playing with notions of authenticity and the truth, they skillfully use humour and satire to comment on the social structures that underpin our relationships with each other, our histories and the world around us. In this conversation, they come together to discuss their approaches to the medium, their individual work and their collaborative projects, with a special focus on their experiences in India and its influence upon their practice.

The group show of works is selected by gallery founder Jane Jackson and current owner Anna Walker Skillman.

“Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.” – I. M. Pei
The oldest surviving product of a photographic process, the first known photograph, View from the Window at Le Gras, presents a fascinating insight into one of humanity’s well-established curiosities early on in the history of photography, the importance of recording the constructed environment. Throughout artistic mediums, the subject of architecture has framed the narratives and developments of some of history’s most defining moments.
