Rhondda Bosworth interview

by Andrew Clark

Rhondda Bosworth has been making photographs since the 1970s, and has developed an extensive practice, which began in modernism but has evolved into a process of experimentation, deconstruction and montage. Her work deals with issues of gender, identity, and the body, through the creation of atmospheric images which obliquely hint at hidden, private narratives. Bosworth is particularly notable for her adoption of a post- modern approach to image-making, especially given the documentary and modernist mode favoured by many of her peers. The following interview was conducted with the artist in March 2017.
