After graduating with a fine-art degree from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at the University of Oxford, Chloe Dewe Mathews worked in the film industry for four years before dedicating herself full-time to photography. She spent two- and-a-half years assisting for Zed Nelson and Marcus Lyon, and then began focusing on her own work last year.
In June 2011 Dewe Mathews signed with Panos Pictures, and her “Caspian” series won several awards, including the British Journal of Photography’s International Photography Award, which included a show at London’s Foto8 gallery.
Dewe Mathews is currently developing her “Caspian” project further in anticipation of an exhibition at 1508 London’s gallery this fall. She plans to continue work in Central Asia and is also developing a long-term project in Britain.
