SHARON O'NEILL

Founder Sharon O’Neill is a lens based artist and curator. Her work and research explores the ordinary world through which the fabric and details of a place or community are revealed. Her work has a strong emphasis on collaboration, particularly with the development and research of archives, both familial and historical and with curating.

Sharon has a Masters Degree in Photography from the University of Brighton and has exhibited nationally as part of an emerging talent exhibition entitled ‘Into View’ with her work being showcased in national and international media.

In 2015 she was shortlisted for the Photo London & Magnum Photos Graduate Photographers Award.

In 2016 she received Arts Council funding to bring together a major exhibition Blueprint for Living that was featured as part of the 2016 London Festival of Architecture and supported by RIBA.

Alongside her photographic work Sharon has also spent the majority of her career as a Photo Editor for national newspapers and magazines in which she has commissioned, researched, curated and produced many bodies of work and archives and has extensive knowledge and contacts within the world of photography, journalism and the arts.

Blueprint for Living is the culmination of her combined expertise into one resource.
