The Great Documentary Photographer Tish Murtha Needs to Be Recognized, Exhibited and Published

This morning a mention on social media reminded me of the late, great but undervalued, almost forgotten, documentary photographer Tish Murtha.

Tish Murtha’s daughter Ella Murtha has inherited her mother’s estate and is now working on ensuring the legacy of one of the great British documentary photographers is not forgotten but is commemorated with exhibitions and the publication of her core body of work, Youth Unemployment.

Tish Murtha studied at the School of Documentary Photography in Newport, Wales, that was founded by Magnum photographer David Hurn. The School is now part of the University of South Wales.
