Madeleine’s Morlet is interested in the ways photography translates reality and the restrictions set by a single frame or point of view, often thinking about her role as the photographer being similar to a subjective third-person narrator who both writes and discovers their story. Her work explores themes of memory, home and belonging, and looks to understand its subjects within their geographic space. In this way, the camera becomes a tool for connecting and finding purpose, especially when it comes to engaging with new environments and communities.
Morlet is a photographer from London, now based in Maine. She studied Classics and English at King's College London and worked in video production for almost a decade. Her photography has been exhibited nationally and internationally. It was awarded the 14th Pollux Award, Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Award, honorable mention for the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Award, honorable mention for the Don’t Take Pictures Prize for Contemporary Photography, Maine Arts Commission Project Grant, Lucie Foundation Photo Made Scholarship, Ellis-Beauregard Studio Residency, and shortlisted for the Lucie Scholarship Chroma X Luxe, Belfast Photo Festival, and Felix Schoeller Photo Awards.
