AIPAD 2013: Antony Crossfield

Antony Crossfield’s (b.1972) work explores the relationship between the body and identity, while also questioning traditional conceptions of corporeality and the male nude.

In Crossfield’s photography the body is presented as unstable, ambiguous and permeable. The body’s boundaries are questioned and the closure and integrity of the self is placed in doubt. Taken from multiple viewpoints, he compresses several photographs into a single frame.

In 2008 he was the recipient of The Independent Photographer’s Terry O’Neill Award. Notable institutions exhibiting his work include the National Portrait Gallery (London, UK) and Fulham Palace (London, UK).
