Another Way of Telling
Another Way of Telling showcases almost 100 works from the rich, dynamic careers of Anna Fox and Karen Knorr, two leading documentary photographers in the UK. In their work, acerbic wit is brought to sharp social commentary on subjects that are seen through two highly individual perspectives that wrap in a warm dose of humor the photographers’ penetrating insight into the issues of our times. The exhibition includes selections from representative themes in each of their bodies of work. Additionally, it features entire series that represent photo essays on the subject of class, working environments, and self-awareness, presented from distinct, alternative perspectives. Fine examples are Anna Fox’s two series Work Stations, and Basingstoke, displayed in contrast to Karen Knorr’s series titled Belgravia, all of which highlight the gulf in class attitudes. Karen Knorr’s Punks, produced together with Swiss photographer Olivier Richon, documented the first generation of the punk music movement in the UK in the mid-1970s. Through these works we see the photographers’ thinking about culture, gender, environment, and nature. The exhibtion is curated by Hao Xu, a photographer, artist, writer and curator based in Shanghai. It is supported by the British Council, and is one of the British Council in China’s “Inspiring Women in the Arts” program.
