An award winning documentary film maker, Anne Clements is also a story teller whose work as an artist plays with reality and fiction. Her practice is multi-disciplinary and includes photography, video, and audio. She is primarily driven by self-initiated projects which explore the relationship between subject and photographer, often through constructed identities, which expand the boundaries of how we interact with one another in order to examine the nature of truth.
Anne has an MA in photography from the London College of Communications and a first class BA honours degree in photography from the University of Westminster. Her work is exhibited in London regularly and has been shown in Cagliari and Zurich. Her photographs have also been published in Chile, Germany, Italy, the UK and US.
In November 2015 she became the winner of the Creative Connections Camden photography competition. Four of the images selected by the judges were shown at the National Portrait Gallery.

Knocking on Strangers’ Doors (2014)
As the title implies I went knocking on strangers’ doors in my area to get to know my neighbours, which is not easy in inner city London. To break the ice I asked them to pose for my camera with an object they loved outside their homes. I was surprised at how many people were willing. As a result I have made new friends in my neighbourhood.
