Ian Fox Exposes Himself (Ian Fox)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

Ian Fox takes photos of funny things – like, say, the back of his cat’s head, or fat people – and then tells us about them with help from his laser-pointer. His agreeable commentary runs gently over the top, mixing in with anecdotes about how the photos came to be taken and more general musings on life. A well-crafted anecdote about getting his shaved-headed friend to accidentally attend an English Defence League rally is an unexpected highlight, but ultimately Fox’s set is a bit too much like someone showing you their holiday snaps. While some of his stories are genuinely funny, the photos themselves are not really worthy of the lavish attention that is bestowed on them.
