Whether photographing fashion, celebrity or documentary, Wendy Carrig is always looking for the 'story' looking beyond the superficial. Seeking connection and finding empathy with those she photographs, encouraging emotional response from both subject and viewer alike.
A prominent photographer for three decades Wendy is recognised for her photographs of models, musicians, Olympians & politicians. Her commercial work has been widely published on magazine covers and advertising hoardings, and she has twice won the Association of Photographers GOLD award. Extending her passion and creativity into her personal work she has gained recognition in the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, Portrait of Britain and Portrait of Humanity awards, and has been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Photographic Society and the Houses of Parliament.
Wendy is a founding member of f22 - AOP women photographers - helping to grow the visibility of female and non-binary photographers and challenge gender disparity within the photographic industry. She was a participating artist in the 209women takeover of Parliament, where 209 new photographic portraits of all the UK's female MPs were shot exclusively by female photographers, marking a centenary of votes for women. This extends back to the beginning of her career when, as a photography student, she documented the women peace protestors at Greenham Common. This work has now been recognised with exhibitions in the UK and Europe.
