Kay May

My photography reflects my life and travels.  I am a teaching fellow at Winchester School of Art, where I am studying for an MPhil in Fine Art. 
My work, The Hawthorn Tree, for the exhibition Bringing the War Home forms part of the Impressions Gallery Archive at the National Photography Collection, housed at the National Media Museum.  Current work can be found in the book of the Venice Biennale 2013, Il Palazzo Enciclopedico.

Please contact me, using the form on the contact page, if you would like to buy prints of any of the work on this site or ask me to quote for a project - or just to make a comment.
