This Engagement talk features Award Winning photographer, Margaret Mitchell.
Margaret Mitchell is a Scottish documentary and portrait photographer whose work ranges from exploring communities and children’s worlds through to long-term documentation projects on environment, opportunity and social inequality.
Her photography explores the intricacies and complexities of people’s lives with a particular emphasis on place and belonging. Responsibility, dialogue and collaboration are key components in her approach.
Mitchell’s talk will take us on a journey through her early documentary practice through to current day work. Within this she will discuss her long-term projects ‘Family’ and ‘In This Place’ which address both personal and political issues and can be seen in her upcoming book with Bluecoat Press.
Mitchell is the recipient of a number of awards including within the Sony World Photography Awards and The Royal Photographic Society’s IPE160. Work has been exhibited widely including at the National Portrait Gallery, London; FORMAT International Photography Festival, Derby; Festival Circulation(s), Paris; Somerset House, London; the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh and Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow.
Alongside working on personal projects, clients include the Guardian, Shelter, Telegraph magazine and CNN. Her work is held in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.
