What you see isn’t at all what you get with Anne Hardy’s haunting photographs. Her makeshift rooms, fabricated from material scavenged in and around her east London studio, are littered with the presence of recent human activity. Debris-strewn floors, an indoor target practice range and scribblings on a wall of coloured boards are all suggestive devices that Hardy relies upon to activate our imagination. But we are being controlled.
