Heather McDonough

Heather McDonough is a fine art photographer with a background in print and design. Aside from her own work, which is often sequence-based, she edits photos for a variety of clients including artists’ monographs published by Chris Boot, Prestel and PhotoWorks.

McDonough's work—often portraiture, but also installation-based—is concerned with the process of photography. She runs a colour darkroom in her Hackney studio where she produces her own prints. Recent work includes World in London at the Photographers Gallery, London Moves East at the London Transport Museum, Mapping the Changes at Hackney Museum and 10-11 at the V&A Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood. Her sequence September Song was selected for evening screening at the Arles Festival of Photography in 2011.

With over 20 years’ teaching experience (including London College of Fashion, Anglia Ruskin University, Northampton University and Thames Valley University) Heather has taught at BA and MA level on a variety of photography, graphics and fine art courses. She holds an MA in Drawing from Wimbledon School of Art.

Heather runs portfolio reviews and organise the annual PhotoMonth Open exhibition.
