Mari Mahr

Born 1945, the daughter of Hungarian Jewish refugees, Mari Mahr returned to Hungary in 1949 where she was educated and trained as a photojournalist. As a result of her political beliefs, she lost her job in Budapest and in 1973 came to London to study photography and has lived and worked here ever since.

She makes 'photoworks' which are series of photographs of other photographs staged with objects that seem to suggest some sort of narrative. These works were bought from the exhibition of her work held at the Mead Gallery in 1992.
