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 an AHRC-funded PhD in Visual Sociology at the same institution. My main research interests are urban communities, the regeneration and gentrification of London, 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 Visual Sociology Association, the International Association of Visual Urbanists, London Independent Photography (LIP) and Crossing Lines (a collaboration between LIP and the Centre of Urban Community Research at Goldsmiths College). I have exhibited my work widely in many (inter)national solo and group shows (click to see CV). 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 am co-organiser of the symposium Engaging in Urban Image Making, hosted by CUCR Goldsmiths.

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