About

Venetia is rarely without a camera in hand, spurred by her passion and curiosity for people and places, and her fascination for light and her craft. Over the past twenty years her work has been published and exhibited worldwide. Her enthusiasm and commitment to her work means her time is split between long term personal projects, and commissions for private and commercial clients, magazines, and charitable organisations.

Her interest in photography began at school in the darkroom, and following an MA in Anthropology and a Postgraduate Degree in Photojournalism, she began a career in documentary photography in 2001. She has seamlessly crossed over into the world of fine art, exhibiting in various prestigious solo and group shows internationally.

Her photographs often oscillate between the intimacies of friendship and kinship ties on the one hand and the wider landscape on the other, serving to contextualise her subjects and asking the viewer to reflect on the way of life in the places she moves through.

She has given talks in New York, Paris, Oslo and around the UK to students and professionals, sharing her tips of the trade and her journey to date. A member of VII Photo from 2011 – 2013, and a project facilitator for PhotoVoice, she is passionate about exploring the importance of the visual narrative. She has sat on the judging panel of various photographic competitions and continues to offer mentorship to emerging talent.

Venetia currently lives in Wales with her family. She is represented by Picture Club.
