Tanya Houghton B.1985. Norfolk. England is a social documentary photographer and interdisciplinary practitioner based in London. Her work has been recognised by The British Journal of Photography and the D&AD. Having studied at both The University of the Arts London and Goldsmiths University, she comes from a background of sociology and constructed photography and works on a range of projects. Drawing on a wide range of sources for inspiration she mixes conceptual still life with Landscape of portrait to explore her narrative. In doing so her practice overlaps the boundaries and explores the tension between documentary photography and conceptual art based practice. Her work considered the details within the everyday, unearthing the unexpected within the familiar, it is the desire to collect and compare them which motivates her work. Through the exploration and documentation of daily networks, she explores the characteristics and memory of everyday communities, creating multilayered works that explore notions centered around food, home and memory.
