Anna Fearon is a photographer turned director who tells stories that celebrate and explore black experience.
Anna started her career as a photographer, focused on creating fashion and editorial work. She describes her approach to image-making as joyful, playful and colourful, often revolving around celebratory images of the black community. She also celebrates black culture and fashion with her magazine Blue, the second issue of which launched earlier this year.
Now striking out as a director, Anna brings the same carefully considered approach to her moving image work. Anna’s films aren’t just beautifully crafted – and clearly made with the well-trained eye of a photographer – they’re also challenging, exploring questions around identity that are often neglected by mainstream media. She’s exploring this subject matter across a variety of mediums, including short film, music videos, and other narrative content.
