Amy D'Agorne is a UK and Yorkshire based photographer who graduated from her BA Photography at Edinburgh School of Art/The University of Edinburgh with First Class Hons in 2015.
Since then she has worked for a variety of clients and on personal projects that have spanned the globe; from Japan to New Zealand and Canada, to all the way back to the North of England.
Her project work primarily consists of long-form, research-based projects that play in the area between documentary and fine art photography, that investigate the prevalent issues related to climate change; such as food sovereignty, corporate agriculture, fossil fuel extraction, and the many-faceted ways that late-stage capitalism presents itself. All as seen through a feminist lens.
Available for commissions, commercial work and workshops.
