Self absented Portraiture – Anna Fox research

Anna Fox’s series Cockroach Diary is a set of text (in diary form) and photographs telling the story of a cockroach invasion in a shared London house where she was living. The series tells more about the relationships between herself and her housemates than it does about the cockroaches.

I like the comedic value of this series, and feel the text gives a better insight into what Fox was trying to establish to her viewer compared to the photographs.
