The OGC x Photofusion Mentorship Award: Marie Smith

Last month we selected photograher and writer Marie Smith as winner of 2019 #TheOGCMentorship via Photofusion’s SALON/18- the photography centre’s annual membership salon exhibition.

‘White Trainers’ Marie Smith, Photofusion SALON/18

For the show Marie exhibited an image from her series ‘White Trainers’ – a photographic series where Marie revisits her childhood home 20 years after her father had committed suicide there. Marie explores her memories of the place via urban landscape, architecture and abstract self-portraiture.

“Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45, this is exacerbated when you factor in race.”

Marie’s writing and placement of text is key to her work, she incorporates a strong consistent style and aesthetic of writing within all her projects’

We look forward to working with Marie over the next 12 months by supporting her practice and process through professional development sessions with The OGC Team and some of our talented industry friends.

Stay tuned to our website and social media for more on Marie and her work in progress.
