Anna Sampson (born in Birkenhead, 1993) is a London-based photographic artist who shoots and prints on film. A graduate in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts (2015) and UCL (2022), her work has been showcased at The Photographer’s Gallery and Christie’s in London; Turner Contemporary in Margate; Galerie Joseph Le Palais in Paris and The Untitled Space in New York. Her work has also been featured in acclaimed cult publications, such as DAZED, i-D, AnOther, Purple Fashion and The Face.

Anna employs a queer erotic gaze in her practice, and her work is borne out of a lifelong fascination with the erotic potential of the body whilst exploring the interplay of performance, fetish, queerness and resistance. Her work is motivated by life experience, and heavily informed by intersectional feminism - specifically the intersection of gender and sexuality with race, class and the politics of the personal – and is further supported by academic inquiry. In this instance, she hopes that her recent postgraduate study of Gender & Sexuality at UCL will continue to inspire and inform her art (and vice versa) with the ultimate goal of working towards social justice for those who are marginalised and oppressed by the patriarchy.

Her full archive is with the UK Leather & Fetish Archive at Bishopsgate Institute.
