Blink by Anna Fox

BooK Launch: Blink, by Anna Fox

BLINK a photobook by Anna Fox, is the first in a limited-edition photobook series produced by MA Fashion Fund Editions.

BLINK — and it’s gone. In January 2017, MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins opened its
studios to acclaimed British photographer Anna Fox to document the building of the final year
collections. Over a two-month period, Fox engaged in fieldwork that reveals the process of
fashion design at close quarters; in its purest, almost abstract form. From first fittings to line-
up; from Granary Building in King’s Cross to London Fashion Week at 180 Strand.

ANNA FOX “I witnessed the trials, tribulations and sheer frenetic bliss of the last few weeks
before the students left university – I love being a photographer for times like these. For the
first few hours I was on trial. Then, once accepted as part of the scene, I felt as if I had been
swept into a mad, punk, rude mechanical ballet of cutting and pinning, sewing and swishing.”

ANNA FOX (b.1961) is one of the most celebrated British photographers of the last thirty
years. Working in colour, Fox first gained attention for Work Stations: Office Life in London
(1988), a study of office culture in Thatcher's Britain. Anna Fox Photographs 1983 – 2007,
was published by Photoworks in 2007. Fox’s solo shows have been seen at Photographer’s
Gallery, London, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago amongst others and her
work has been included in international group shows including How We Are: Photographing
Britain at Tate Britain. She was shortlisted for the 2010 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize.
