Chloe Dewe Mathews
British documentary photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews studied at The Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford University. Her most recent series Shot at Dawn records many of the sites where approximately 1,000 British, French and Belgian soldiers were executed for cowardice or desertion during the first world war. Shot at Dawn was included in Tate Modern’s recent landmark exhibition Time, Conflict, Photography and currently features in a solo show at The Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Her work is internationally recognised, exhibiting at Tate Modern, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Museum Folkwang and Fotomuseum Antwerp, as well as being published widely in newspapers and magazines such as the Guardian, Sunday Times, Financial Times, Harpers and Le Monde. Public and private collections have acquired her work, including the British Council Collection, the Irish State Art Collection and the National Library of Wales.
Her awards include the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award, the Julia Margaret Cameron New Talent Award and the Flash Forward Emerging Photographer’s Award and her nominations include the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, the Prix Pictet and Paul Huf Award.
Chloe’s first monograph ‘Shot at Dawn’ was published by Ivorypress in 2014 and in the same year she became the Robert Gardner Fellow in Photography at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University.
