Annie Benton is a self-portraiture and performance photographer, who works around the areas of feminism and women's rights, using historical and contemporary affairs as her references. With the use of costume, make-up and expression, Annie performs to the camera and to her audience, confronting them to challenge their morals and biases.

 

Annie has worked with a number of analogue and digital processes in both professional work and personal work, as well as experimenting with the more technical aspects of photographic processes. 

Benton is currently a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Wolverhampton, teaching students on the Photography and Foundation Art and Design Courses.
