Anthony Hopewell has been a practising photographer and filmmaker since graduating in 1973, with first class honours, from the renowned photography course at Trent Polytechnic (now Nottingham Trent University), where he studied with Thomas Joshua Cooper, Ray Moore, John Mulvaney and Paul Hill amongst others.

He was subsequently awarded an MA (with Distinction) from DMU.

Alongside his commercial work Anthony has always been involved in both personal independent practice and in photographic education, teaching on various undergraduate and post-graduate programmes in the UK, most recently at Falmouth University in Cornwall.

His interest in the notion of “Place”, and how space is inhabited, has resulted in a series of photographic projects centred on an inquiry into the issues surrounding urban-rural antagonism; territory as a product of historical and political decisions, ownership and power, memory and loss, identity and time, as witnessed in a man-altered landscape.

Various current lines of visual inquiry may be viewed under “Work in Progress”.

The latest resolved work "Dulce et Decorum est" is a visual inquiry into the haunted landscapes of WW1 battlefields, with particular relationship to the work of war-poet Wilfred Owen.


Works are held in many collections and have been shown nationally and internationally in individual exhibitions, group shows and festivals.
