About me
Jenna is a self taught photographer from a lifelong practise in many mediums of art. Using mainly analogue techniques Jenna approaches photography with a distinctly feminine gaze. By creating and responding to relaxed moments, Jenna’s work communicates emotions through intimacy and a soft aesthetic. Her purposeful use of natural light leads to imagery that feels warm and authentic. Based in Cornwall, much of Jenna’s personal work focusses on her friends and local community of artisans. Jenna’s work has been featured twice in Creative Review’s Photography Annuals (2017 & 2018). Other publications include It's Nice That, Suitcase, The Observer, Roundtable Journal and Dazed. Select clients include Apple Music, Adidas, Casio, Converse, Story MFG, Red Bull Music, Talisker, Live Nation and Universal Music. Represented by Common Era Agency, London. @jennafoxton @common_era_agency

  • Pivot Goods
    Pivot GoodsHalf an hour to create a brands visual identity?! This is the circumstances we were left with when photographing Pivot Goods, an independent venture by a good friend of mine in Falmouth. I became aware of her talent for tailor when I saw one of her hand crafted hats in person and discovered it was to be a new business for her. My initial reaction was “I want one!” quickly followed by an instant visual ideas. I was keen to create photography that played with shadows to emphasise the distinct over
  • Foraging & Feasting
    Foraging & FeastingTo many, fungi are the stuff of fairy tale, associated with witchcraft or psychedelics. I embarked on a mushroom-foraging expedition in Ashdown Forest with Emma Phillips for Suitcase Magazine. Scanning the floor, feet treading softly between open heathland and birch wood. The scent of autumn, of moisture and decaying leaves, hangs thick in the air and, at the foot of the trees, you can see blooms of yellow sulphur tuft rearing their many heads. After scouring our basket was full of wild fungi

    Talisker Whisky 'Stories From The Wilderness Bar'The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge is an annual 3,000-mile rowing challenge across the Atlantic from the coast of La Gomera to Antigua.

  • Tarana
    Taranaan ongoing personal series documenting Mati, who has taken on the task of single handedly restoring a 1912 4ton Gaff Cutter. Mati’s love for classic boats led her to adopting Tarana when she was left for ruin by her previous owner. Keeping with its traditional foundations, Mati has been making progress working through the many stages required to restore this classic boat, based in a communal workshop in Gweek, Cornwall.
  • Story MFG
    Story MFGStory MFG AW19 look book, shot on location in Brighton. Katy & Saeed of Story MFG have a deal with the weather. They make it so every time I have a shoot with them the weather is really grey and extra challenging, because they enjoy watching me sweat it out a bit more. This time the added element for extra fun was 30mph wind. Models @flxssie & @jasonminaar, styling by @danielpacitti.

  • Lost Village
    Lost Villagean immersive festival experience in an abandoned woodland village... As you venture into the woods, you enter a land that time forgot; an ancient forest inhabited by all manner of unusual people. Nomadic tribes, clandestine cults and misplaced souls, all wonder its leafy corridors. Once inside you will co-exist with the native people of the Village, as reality flickers and a new world arises. A surreal dreamscape of unsolved mysteries. Fanatic have been the official photography since Lost Vill
