When documentary photographer Margaret Mitchell spoke to the RPS Documentary Group last year the feedback was so good I decided to invite her to join us for a regional event. Please note you are very welcome where ever you are from in the World.

If you are interested in social documentary and how to develop projects that say something I really recommend you join us for this talk.

Who is 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 from early work through to current day projects. Within this she will also discuss also her long-term projects which address both personal and political issues and can be seen in her upcoming book, ‘Passage’, with Bluecoat Press. She will also cover her experiences of working collaboratively, of making work towards exhibitions, awards and sustaining her creative practice.

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.
