Sue Fox Lecturer, Photography

Sue Fox

I am an international photographer, writer, performer and lecturer who is known for her work on subversive and taboo matters such as sex and death. My taboo photographs of the dead have appeared in international exhibitions, such as The Dead.

I have photographs in over 40 publications worldwide and my most notable books are Post Mortem and Vile Bodies and my first memoir ‘The Visceral Tear’- The Art of Cuntography was published through Oneiros Books and aired at London’s notorious Troubadour in 2021.

Day to day, I give one-to-one tutorials, run seminars, workshops and lectures. I go out on shoots to unusual locations. I also bring in guest lecturers and use external connections in the industry to help students develop their future careers ideas. I like to bring in ex-students and students from differing years into the classes to create ongoing discourse on Photography.

I am a Lecturer teaching to students on BA Photography after initially beginning in that department back in 2002, then coming back full circle to work here again in 2020. I previously taught on the Film & Media BA programme for eleven years from 2009-2020 and also on the MA Media Arts for two years 2005-2007.

I have taught all years and I was a dissertation supervisor to third year students on the Film & Media Degree, curating their final year exhibitions in the well established Manchester School of Art Degree shows and at other venues in the city.
