Biography

Matilda was born on a cider farm in Somerset, England in 1981. After pursuing a career in tropical infectious diseases she happened upon photography. She is known for her stylised portraiture of marginalised societies. At times confrontational, her work is a empathetic nod to the self expression of her subjects and commands the immediate attention of the viewer.



“I have always admired the bravery of the mavericks who are comfortable to sit outside society’s norms”



Matilda is based in London and divides her time between commissions and her personal work. This year Matilda was a finalist for the SONY World Photo Awards for her African work. She was also a finalist in the CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the year awards for her work on the Somerset floods. Matilda's first book Under The Surface - Somerset Floods was published in 2014.
