I am an urban photographer / visual sociologist based in south-east London. I studied Photography at the London Institute, College of Printing (now London College of Communication), completed a Master's in Photography and Urban Cultures at the Sociology Department of Goldsmiths College, University of London, and am currently studying towards a PhD in Visual Sociology at the same institution. I have exhibited my work widely in many solo and group shows (click to see CV). My main research interests are urban communities, the representation of class, visual research methods and participatory photographic practice. Some of my papers can be read online: goldsmiths.academia.edu/AnitaStrasser. I am a member of The Urban Photographers Association, the International Association of Visual Urbanists (iAVU), London Independent Photography (LIP) and Crossing Lines (a collaboration between LIP and the Centre of Urban Community Research at Goldsmiths College). For a living, I work as an Academic Support Tutor on various programmes at the University of the Arts London, supporting international students through their Art and Design degree courses (I also have a background in teaching and a Master's in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching from King's College, London).

I have participated in the following projects: 
CW, The London Villages Project, The McMillan Herb Garden, The Elephant's Journey and Framing Urban Narratives
