Anne Hardy is a London-based photographer known for her large-scale photographic work of unusual interior spaces. She completed an Masters in Photography at the Royal College of Art in 2000, having graduated from Cheltenham School of Art in 1993 with a degree in painting. Hardy lives and works in London and is represented by Maureen Paley.

Hardy’s images appear to be photographs of existing places but they are quite the opposite. Working in her studio, Hardy builds each of her sets entirely from scratch; a labour-intensive process of constructing an empty room, then developing its interior down to the most minute detail. The interiors combined together with found objects transform the spaces into unusual, almost dreamlike, environments which can be unnerving with their themes of abandonment and desolation.
