About

Helen McGhie (b.1987) is a visual artist with an interest in the empirical nature of darkness. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2014 where she explored the relationship between the archetype of the monstrous-female, interiority and the photographic gaze. McGhie is is currently completing a practice-led PhD exploring alternative experiences of cosmic darkness at the University of Sunderland, which is in partnership with Kielder Observatory, Northumberland - here, she is using photography to radically re-examine cultural images of outer space to engage ‘stargazing’ audiences with unconventional imaginative experiences.

McGhie teaches photography at the University of Sunderland (Northern Centre of Photography) and the University of Central Lancashire, and has a studio at Unit 4, Islington Mill (Salford).
