Fox has cited Stone as a major influence and her photographs were included in the 2008 outdoor exhibition on Sir Benjamin Stone and his legacy in Birmingham. 'Back to the Village' is an ongoing photography project observing the uniquely English rituals such as nativity plays, Halloween, and Guy Fawkes Night that take place in the picturesque villages of Hampshire.
