Matilda was born in Somerset, England in 1981. After pursuing a career in tropical infectious diseases she happened upon photography. She claims to be unobservant naturally and as result uses her camera as a tool for opening up the world and looking. She is now based in the UK and diveds her time between commissions and her personal work. Her personal work is inspired by marginalised groups and societies. Matilda is currently working on her second book ‘ Bodies – The Human Zoo’ which is a celebration of physicality, performers and the human form.
