About Margaret


Margaret Mitchell is a photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Her overarching interest lies in people and their stories, with childhood, youth, place and belonging often explored in the people and places photographed.

She often photographs children and young people - people in the midst of establishing a sense of self; sometimes being in transformation from one state to another: child to youth to adult. The inner and lived worlds of others are central to her photography with her work seeking to portray the individual and their experience(s).

Her work has been exhibited widely, including at the European Parliament, Street Level Photoworks and at the National Portrait Gallery as part of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize.

Work has been featured on Firecracker and she was a finalist in the LensCulture Portrait Awards 2017.
