Anna Guyton is a photographer and fat queer activist who was born and raised in Fayetteville, AR. They recently completed their undergraduate degree in studio art from Reed College (Portland, OR). Anna’s art practice emphasizes photography’s materiality through physical manipulations of prints and employs photography as a means of representing the embodied self, reclaiming space, and fat liberation. Their work has been exhibited in various Portland area galleries, including Blackfish Gallery’s Recent Graduates Exhibition and the Blue Sky Photography Center’s 2022 PNW Drawers. They have been exhibited locally at the Walton Arts Center, Fenix Gallery, and were awarded a Creative Exchange Fund residency for the spring of 2023.
