About Vanessa Winship
Featured on LensCulture
- An exhibition at London’s Barbican Centre spotlights the work of Vanessa Winship, a photographer with a knack for capturing life on the margins in the Balkans, North America, and beyond.
- “If you’re going to stand out, be different. Be different and put yourself in situations where your work will be noticed.” Words of wisdom and advice from Xavier Soule, the president of one of France’s great photographic institutions.
- The photography of Vanessa Winship establishes a dialogue with the mark left by the twentieth century on people and the places they have passed through: long processes defined by movements of fracture and integration, the instability of frontiers and the reaffirmation of identities. In short, her images focus on the effect of history on everyday life.
- Photographer Vanessa Winship writes: “Many things touched me during the making of these images. I was touched by the gravity in their demeanour at the moment in front of the camera, their fragility, their simplicity, their grace, their closeness to one another, but most of all I was struck by their complete lack of posturing.”
