Post show Q&A with Paul Sng

Tish Murtha was a visionary photographer committed to documenting the struggle and inequality of the working-class communities that framed her upbringing. Despite early acclaim, she was unable to make a living from photography and was unable to escape the poverty she documented. She died aged 56, her work relatively unknown. Her photographic archive from Northeast England and London’s Soho in the 1970s and 1980s is lovingly realised in this exploration of the legacy of her work and private life by her daughter, Ella Murtha. In digging into the past, Ella comes to terms with her own grief at her mother’s passing and reconnects with family members not seen in years.
