The Chilean born British photographer started her career as a photo-journalist but has moved steadily away from documentary to develop a distinctive, personal and innovative approach to photography. This exhibition comes to the Mead Gallery after an extensive tour of Europe and the United States. Based on travels to China, Israel, the South of France and the South Seas, it will also include a series of her most recent work.
“Whereas most people bring back snapshots from their holidays aboard, I bring back ‘location shots’ which become background for the photographs I make on return … not just visual records of place, people and objects … my works are a fusion of the real and the imagined” -Mari Mahr.
Published to coincide with the opening in London of the touring exhibition Mari Mahr : isolated incidents, organised by the Photographers’ Gallery.
