Matilda Temperley- A View From The Hill

Documentary and fashion photographer Matilda Temperley has been working on a year-long project to discover and document Somerset today.

A View From The Hill is an exhibition of new images by the award-winning photographer capturing Somerset’s wonderful distinctiveness and some of the issues facing its communities today.

Matilda studied biology at Edinburgh University before completing an MSc in the control of infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. After working in the field in East Africa Matilda returned to the UK where she pursued a new career in photography.

Matilda’s photography is diverse and includes fashion and documentary commissions. Her work regularly appears in internationally recognised newspapers and magazines.

Matilda is passionate about her documentary projects, many of which explore the experience of marginalised communities. She is probably best known locally for her work in response to the winter floods of 2013–14 which severely affected her family and the community where she grew up. Her sell-out book, Under the Surface: Somerset Floods, won the Royal Photographic Society’s Vic Odden Award.
