Anna Cummings (n. St John’s, Canada, 1990) is a conceptual documentary and fine-art photographer based in Marseille, France. Her practice is based around reflections between terrestrial and mental landscapes and alternative representations of the border in contemporary Europe. Her practice seeks to question the formal possibilities of photography, and documentary photography more specifically, in its discursive relation to current events. She has participated in group exhibitions at Konnektor Forum für Künste, Hannover (2016) 47/49 Tanner Street, London (2017), Cosmos Books x Rencontres d’Arles : Family of Man (2018), and with artist collective Diaph8 at the 17th edition of Paris’ annual Nuit Blanche (Mur d’Images, Stalingrad, 2018); in 2017 she contributed an edition to Carpe Diem Arte y Pesquisa's Lisbon-based collection. She holds a Bachelor’s degree with distinction in Peace, Conflict and Justice Studies from the Munk School of International Relations at the University of Toronto (2013). In 2019, she completed a Master’s degree, also with distinction, in Photography & Contemporary Art at Université Paris VIII. Living and working in Marseille as a translator, English teacher, and artist, her translation clients have included Vice Media (FR), Centre Pompidou, Centre Photographique Marseille, Marseille Expos, Salon du Salon, Images Plurielles Editions, and others.
