Edinburgh-based photographer Mhairi Bell-Moodie, who has recently graduated from the BA Photography at Edinburgh College, has been announced as a winner of Creativepool Annual 2017 Awards. The annual awards celebrate creative excellence from 17 countries across 33 categories. Mhairi was awarded judges’ choice in the Photography Individual category for her series FLUX.
FLUX is a series of portraits of young people transitioning from childhood to adulthood. Through racial diversity, physical and mental health issues, sexual discovery, a political voice, faith, families and friendships, these young people challenge the stereotype of what it is to be a young person in Scotland today.
It’s an hounour to have my work acknowledged by industry professionals but most of all, I’m pleased that the stories of the young people I photographed have touched so many people.
Mhairi’s project can be viewed on her website.
