“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.
Karen Knorr nominated for the first prize dedicated to commissioned photography
Karen Knorr is honoured to be counted amongst the three nominated photographers by Stéphane Magnan (Director, Les Filles du Calvaire Gallery, Paris) for the Ooshot Award, the first prize dedicated to commissioned photography. The Ooshot Award was created by the visual content platform Ooshot. The Ooshot Award wishes to reward authors and artists whose visions are successfully used by brands, companies and institutions.
The Ooshot Award will reward a photographic commissioned work done by a professional photographer on behalf of a client. It concerns all the sectors where images are called upon to serve a communication objective: corporate, institutional, community, industry…, whatever its field of application: fashion, advertising, beauty, still life, culinary, reportage/documentary, portrait, etc. The prize only excludes press photography.
The fifth international research workshop in a series funded
by the Leverhulme Trust to be held 28–29 October in Lagos, Nigeria
Azu Nwagbogu and Charlotte Langhorst at LagosPhoto, Professor Anna Fox and Maria Kapajeva, from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA, UK), have organised the fifth research workshop for the Fast Forward 2 International Networks project, which will be held at LagosPhoto Festival. This next workshop, at this rapidly growing international photography festival, includes established and early career professionals from the fields of photography, curation, and writing to discuss new perspectives on women in photography in West Africa and the wider African continent as well as representation of women in new photographic practices.
Invited guests and presenters will discuss issues and ideas and share information valuable for future projects with the aim of advocating for women photographers to be better recognised and discussed in the world of photography.
Since the 1970s, photographers have increasingly asked questions about the nature of the medium and the role of the photographer in the construction of the image. Women artists have been particularly active in this, as photography provides a way of working distinct from the traditionally masculine art forms of painting and sculpture.

This year marks La Gacilly Photo Festival’s 15th birthday. Over this time, it has won a significant place in the world of photography, in France and internationally. In the village of La Gacilly, the gardens, alleys and walls of the houses are transformed into photographic galleries dedicated to art for the passer by.
American photographer Karen Knorr is taking us through the looking glass. She is a landmark figure in contemporary photography and belongs to a generation of artists who have questioned the nature of the craft by no longer seeing it as a pure expression of reality but as the creation of fabricated images. By capturing foxes or wild boar, stags or herons who have ventured into the sumptuous residences of pre-Revolutionary France or sublime Indian palaces, the artist composes unlikely scenarios in the face of which the amused yet unsettled viewer is reduced to the status of incredulous witness.
Karen Knorr presents new work from India and Japan for the first time in a UK museum dedicated to photography and its invention by Fox Talbot.
The photographic work of Karen Knorr is the Fox Talbot Museum’s second exhibition in the 2018 Women and Power celebration. Her work arises out of cultural research she undertakes and is in response to traditions, materials, furniture and ways of living.
Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its third edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community.
Karen Knorr, whose work is in collections such as the Tate, Pompidou and Victoria & Albert museums will be showing a range of work at Photo London from the vintage Punk Series at Galerie Filles du Calvaire to India Song at Augusta Edwards.
