Join us in an artist talk by award winning photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews on 18 February at the UCA Farnham site. Students who visited the “Conflicts, Time, Photography” will remember her outstanding work “Shot at Dawn”.

Chloe is an award-winning photographer based in London. After studying fine art at Camberwell College of Arts and the University of Oxford, she worked in the feature film industry before dedicating herself to photography. Her work is internationally recognised, exhibiting at Tate Modern, Irish Museum of Modern Art and Museum Folkwang, as well as being published in the Guardian, Sunday Times and Le Monde. Her first monograph ‘Shot at Dawn’ was published by Ivorypress in 2014 and in the same year she became the Robert Gardner Fellow in Photography at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University.

Whilst this is an OCA event it will also be open to UCA students, so early booking is encouraged, it will start at 5:00pm. There will be a video of the talk, which will be made available for those not able to attend.

    Unfortunately I can’t make it John, which is a shame as it is on my doorstep. I’ll look out for the video.

    I watched her talk at the Brighton Film Festival in 2014 so know it will be well worthwhile going. Have booked my place and looking forward to it.

    Wish it were some 10 000 km closer as I found her work very interesting when I looked at it during DPP. Looking forward to the video and herewith a big THANKS to those that spend the time creating a video record for us to view.

    I would recommend going to see her work. She did a lecture here in Newcastle last night about her photographic practice which was full of useful insights.
