Anna Fox and Karen Knorr, 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.
What kind of storytellers are they? What are the stories they’re attempting to tell? From visual strategies to critical and conceptual frameworks, the two artists break down their process, vision, their mentorship of women in photography and much more.
