Margaret Salmon

b. 1975, USA

Margaret Salmon (born 1975, Suffern, NY) studied photography at the Schoolof Visual Arts, New York and the Royal College of Art, London. Margaret Salmon creates film portraits that weave together poetry and ethnography. Often focusing on individuals in their everyday environments, her films capture the minutiae of daily life and infuse them with gentle grandeur, emotional intensity and formal abstraction. Adapting techniques drawn from various cinematic movements, such as Free Cinema, the European Avant Garde and Italian Neo-Realism, Salmon's orchestrations of sound and image introduce formal lyricism and abstraction into the tradition of realist film.

Margaret Salmon won the first Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2006. Her work was shown at the Venice Biennale in 2007 and the Berlin Biennale in 2010 and was features in individual exhibitions at Witte de With, Rotterdam and Whitechapel Gallery, London among many others. She lives and works in Glasgow.
