Mathushaa Sagthidas

Photographer Overview

Mathushaa Sagthidas, a winner of Portrait of Britain 2023 and first-generation British freelance photographer, stylist, set designer and art director (studied at Camberwell College of Arts, UAL) with an interest in fine art and contemporary fashion. Mathushaa’s work often examines her identity - Tamil Eelam ethnicity and British nationality, which is reflected through traditions, history and fashion photography.

Identity, authenticity and representation are important to her because of her parents’ upbringing and experiences during the Sri Lankan civil war, which took place from 1983 until now. The history of the war, their suffering and their experience led Mathushaa to learn and embrace her ethnic culture, traditions and heritage more and more.

Her photography work spans a range of brands including Amazon, Wolf & Badger, Fashion United, MullenLowe, GUAP, Adidas, Aterlier100 and Royal Court Theatre; publications such as Creative Lives, Glass Magazine, The Photographer's Gallery, gal-dem, Hypebae, Fashion Minority Report, THIIIRD Magazine, Hypebeast, Dishoom, It's Nice That, The British Library and Graduate Fashion Week and exhibitions such as Tate Britain, PhotoFusion, BBH London, Lake Gallery, Camberwell Space Gallery, Rankin x Maryland Studio, Royal Greenwich Museums including billboards across the UK and a solo show with Bow Arts.
