About Dorrie McVeigh
I am a British photographer based in Marseille in the South of France.
I was born in New York, grew up in London and having finished a bachelor's degree in "Comparative Religions" where I specialized in Hinduism, I went on to do a diploma in Photographic Practice at what was then called "The London College of Printing". Following this, I traveled alone to India and over a period of 3 months, and photographed the extraordinary "Kumbh Mela" festival in Haridwar, Uttar Pradesh where I discovered my love for portrait photography. I returned to London and studied Portraiture at Central Saint Martins in London. I now live and work in Marseille, where I am inspired daily by the diversity, colours and light of this incredible city.
What I want most from my work, is to make photos that speak to you, that are both moving and inspiring, and that encourage the viewer to question the moment and be touched by it.
This is what I love about photographs, being taken on a visual journey of reflection that is free from rules or limits, and that leaves us wiser for it.
