Experimental physicists are still looking for a particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model: the Higgs boson. (Named after the physicist who first got the idea).
Photons are bosons that mediate the electromagnetic force. The Higgs boson and associated Higgs field "explain mass".
I've never heard of an anti-photon, so perhaps in the Standard Model a photon is its own anti-particle.
One of the goals of the ATLAS experiment is to find the predicted particle, or evidence of its non-existence:
