I am a news and documentary photographer, from the UK. After beginning my career in press photography I became interested in telling the stories behind the news. In 2009 I embarked on my first major documentary project, the story of the Dale Farm Traveller community which I am continuing to work on today This experience building the trust and understanding that is so important to communication forms the core of my documentary photography.

My work has been recognised internationally by bodies including the Amnesty International Media Awards, the Sony World Photography Awards, China International Photo Contest, UK Picture Editors Guild and the Magenta Foundation. 

Publications and clients include The Times of London, The Sunday Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Australian,  Huck Magazine, LensBlog, Gazeta Wyborcza, Le Monde and many more.  I am a contributor to agencies Eyevine and Getty Images.

I speak English, French and get by quite well in Arabic. I can be reached at +44 7930859161 and email: maryt03@gmail.com
