Biography

Rachael Munro-Fawcett is a UK-based photographer whose work examines the relationships that exist between people and their environment. With a strong social and environmental focus, her practise is driven by an ardent belief in the power of photography to facilitate discussions that initiate positive change within societies. Her work explores a diverse range of cultures, communities and landscapes, broadening the scope of conversation to include worlds that exist beyond her own socio-economic and geographical boundaries. 

Funded by Arts Council England, her long term project To Walk In Your Shoes was an insight into the daily plight of asylum seekers and refugees living in the UK. The project partnered with City of Sanctuary Manchester and PAFRAS Leeds (Positive Action for Asylum Seekers and Refugees) and was widely exhibited across the north of England. Her long term project Hollin Lane is a documentary exploration of a local allotment in the North of England. Hollin Lane has been confirmed for its solo exhibition at Leeds Central Library in Autumn 2021 and a portrait from the Hollin Lane project is included in the Bristol Photo Festival 2021. 

Rachael lives in Leeds and in between projects freelances as a portrait and commercial photographer. She received a BA Hons degree in Photography from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2007 and is the founder and curator of Photographers In Isolation.
