Emma Bentley Fox

Emma Bentley Fox, she/her, is an artist & producer based in Leeds. Interested in image making as community making, she has a deep commitment to creating caring & accessible spaces, informed by her own experiences of exclusion. A Party Mom with, and co-founder of, Party Mom Society, she has been creating and documenting alternative queer party spaces in Leeds since 2018. Her photography is soft, personal and intimate, though not sometimes without edge or silliness. She uses photography as a way to explore gender expression & identity, Disability and her relationship to those around her, using joy, care & radical togetherness as acts of resistance. Shooting on 35mm film, she also has an interest in personal and historic photographic archives, and analogue film techniques.  She has recently released a new zine, ‘To _______, Thanks for Everything! Emma’.
