Photographer Mary McCartney talks to Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of Photographs at the V&A, about her portraiture, her move in to motion, her love of dance and what she does best – capturing intimate almost voyeuristic moments. In partnership with National Portrait Gallery.

Mary McCartney is a British photographer whose photography and motion work has focused on discovering those rare moments of unguarded, emotionally charged intimacy that offers us a new insight in to the subject. Her work has concentrated on the world of portrait and candid reportage photography and is suffused with a deep personal investment that captures the creative chemistry between Mary and her subjects, an approach echoed in her moving image pieces.

Martin Barnes is Senior Curator of Photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

 

This talk takes place off-site at National Portrait Gallery at St. Martin’s Pl, London WC2H 0HE
