Wendy Carrig's narrative-led images focus mainly on women's stories. She works extensively with female aligned brands as well as charities and activist groups. Working across multi-genres she often fuses fashion and portraiture, still life and documentary photography. Creating pictures with purpose she's always looking for the story, always encouraging an emotional response.
Her work has been widely recognized including by the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, the Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award, and with GOLD awards from the Association of Photographers. She has been the featured artist of PhotoLondon magazine, was a participating artist in the 209women takeover of Parliament, and is a founding member of f22aop women photographers - created to challenge gender disparity within the photographic industry.
This links back to her early career when, as a photography student, she documented Women Peace Protestors at Greenham Common. This work has now been recognized with publications and exhibitions at home and abroad.
Wendy Carrig is a photography mentor and an Associate Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University.
