Margaret Mitchell

Photographer, Glasgow, Scotland

Margaret studied photography at Edinburgh Napier University and at the Edinburgh College of Art. Her interest lies in people and their stories with an emphasis on environmental portraiture. Themes of the child, youth, family, identity and yearning, situated within the narratives of living, are often revisited in the people and environments photographed. She has exhibited widely including at the European Parliament and as part of the Taylor Wessing 2014 at the National Portrait Gallery.


The work being undertaken for Documenting Britain is focused on one locale within Glasgow. Project M will attempt to examine an urban area and its people and see if different narrative strands emerge from that work.
