Jenny Matthews


I have worked as a photographer since 1982. My work has been commissioned and published in a wide range of international magazines including Marie Claire, Guardian Weekend magazine, The Sunday Times, The Independent Magazine, Night and Day magazine and the Independent on Sunday Review.

I have also done substantial work for development organisations (including Save the Children, Action Aid, Oxfam, Christian Aid, Sight Savers) particularly in Latin America, Middle East, Africa and South East Asia.

My book Women and War was published in 2003 by Mets and Shilt in Holland, Pluto Press in UK and University of Michigan in USA. It was short-listed for the John Kobal book award and was highly commended.

The exhibition ‘Women and War’ was shown in London, Newcastle, Aberystwyth and Nottingham in 2003/4, and in The Imperial War Museum, Manchester, and St Mungo’s Museum, Glasgow in 2005.
