In 2011, after Annemarie’s father David had given her some booklets from the Fox Talbot Museum in England, an intrigued Annemarie attended two workshops at Lacock Abbey, the home of Henry Fox Talbot and the birth of photography.
Seduced by the historic processes Annemarie returned to Lacock in 2013, as an artist in residence, building a significant body of work of photogenic drawings (in particular the Cloister and Book Mark Series).
Annemarie's work made during that residency is now being exhibited at the museum.
'Photography in its Birthplace'
Featuring the work of Annemarie Hope Cross along with Claudio Santambrogio, Laura Hartford, Mike Robinson and Ginger Owen
opened at the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock, Britain's birthplace of photography on 30 September and will run until 28 January 2018.
Over the last ten years we have hosted a number of visiting artists who have stayed for a few days to a few weeks to draw inspiration from Lacock and create work in the spirit of William Henry Fox Talbot.
The artists in this exhibition donated a body of work from their time here to our museum and we would like to show the work inspired by walking in the footsteps of one of photography’s greatest inventors.
