Caroline Irby

I was born in Hong Kong in 1977 and came to live in the UK shortly after (I’m sure shifting country at an early age keeps you on the move…).  Smitten by the camera aged 13, I spent my teenage years in the dark room; my twenties studying Philosophy and French at Edinburgh University, then working on assignment for various magazines and NGOs across the developing world.  I was motivated then and now by a faith in photography’s capacity to connect the viewer to the subject; to link worlds that often appear disconnected. Photography is magic.

Mother, now, to two small children, increasingly but not always my subjects are closer to home.  My particular areas of interest are immigration and children; luckily London where I live is rich in both. I’ve always written as well as photographed, starting at 17 with articles in the Independent and Evening Standard.  During 2009 I had a weekly portrait and interview column, Seen and Heard, in the Guardian Weekend Magazine.  In 2010 my first book, A Child from Everywhere, was published by Black Dog Publishing.  For this project, I photographed and interviewed children from 185 different countries, all now living in the UK.

My work has been shown at venues including the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, Royal Festival Hall, Somerset House, the Edinburgh G8 summit, The World Children’s Art Museum, Japan, and the National Parliament, Uganda, and published by the usual suspects – Newsweek, Sunday Times Magazine, Guardian Weekend, Telegraph Magazine, FT Magazine, Observer Magazine, The Economist, Marie Claire…
