Charlotte Cory is an artist and writer best known for her VISITORIANA - a complete, fantastical, ’wholly believable’ alternative 19th Century. A post-Darwinian intriguing universe of reworked, recycled, collaged and montaged Victorian ’carte de visite’ photography and her own photography combined with taxidermy. This is a world in which the animals - or ’Visitorians’ as we must call them now for they are neither wholly animal nor entirely human being - are very definitely in charge.

Her visual story-telling is matched by a distinguished writing career, including novels, collections of short stories, BBC Radio plays and drama series. All characterised by ’endless playful inventiveness’ (Sunday Times).
