Bio

Dorrie McVeigh is a British Portrait, Fashion and Fine Art Photographer.

Mcveigh was born in New York and after her parents emigrated to the UK,  she grew up in London and now lives and works in Marseille in Southern France.  

"My  photography has always been  a means for me to forage into my unconscious and reveal the world as I see it.  Having grown up in a country that is not my homeland, I have always travelled  and I am aware that my images are born from this.  Whilst I am drawn to the iconography and sheen of modern life,  what really interests me is to strip this back to reveal the fragile, quiet and some times empty spaces that lie beneath.  

Photographers and artists whose work never ceases to touch me:  Edward Hopper, Sally Mann, Germaine krull, Nan Goldin,  Segio Larrain, Diane Arbus, Don Mcullin to name but a few....
