“Another Way of Telling: Photographs by Anna Fox and Karen Knorr” showcases almost 100 works from the rich, dynamic careers of two of Britain’s leading documentary photographers. Here, acerbic wit is brought to sharp social commentary on subjects that are seen through two highly individual perspectives that wrap the photographers’ penetrating insight into the issues of our times in a warm dose of humour. The exhibition includes selections from representative themes in each of their work, as well entire series which function like photo essays exploring topics like class, working environments, and self-awareness. Here we have Anna Fox’s Work Stations, and Basingstoke, in contrast with Karen Knorr’s Belgravia about the gulf in class attitudes, and Punks which documented the first generation of the punk music movement with Olivier Richon in the UK in the mid-1970s.
Karen Knorr, together with a group of artists and photographers, will join Marie Docher with the reading of #LaPartDesFemmes: A manifesto for equal opportunity in photography during conversations organised and presented by Fannie Escoulen at Paris Photo on November 8 at 14:15.
