Anthea Spivey

Anthea was born in Australia before she moved to Tanzania and went on to spend most of her childhood in Senegal before going to university in the UK to study photography. Her practice has centred around African culture and tradition. Through her lens she shares the stories of the people she encounters and delves into cultures that a lot of people might not consider.

Anthea explores making a difference through her photographic practice as she finds the photographs she creates influence, change or impact her subjects. She is passionate about photojournalism and strongly believes that it is a fascinating time to be a female photojournalist in a male dominated industry.
