Anna Sampson is a self-taught photographer who shoots on film and prints in the darkroom. She graduated in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts in 2015, where the central focus of her work was a series of portraits, titled Gender Trouble, which was showcased at Doomed Gallery (London) in 2017 and featured with publications such as Dazed, Purple Fashion and the Evening Standard. Her work has travelled far and wide; from queer dive bars in East London to prestigious institutions such as the Turner Contemporary in Margate; to Parallel Vienna, and The Untitled Space in New York. Intersectional feminism is at the core of her politics, which is supported with her current postgraduate study of Gender & Sexuality at UCL, with the intent that the two mediums of art and academia will inspire and inform one another with the ultimate goal of working towards social justice for those marginalized and oppressed by the patriarchy.
