My name is Marie Hill; I am a British photographer and designer graduating in 3D Design from Plymouth College of Art and Design. I have worked as a designer and photographer for over 30 years and photography has always been incorporated into my work.
I spent 22 years of my life in Cambodia working in the arts and crafts sector assisting to reestablish the cultural and traditional arts and crafts that were severely damaged by the war. Through my work I gained much valuable photographic experiences and opportunities by documenting and promoting the artisans the country and the people.
I was greatly inspired and influenced by internationally renowned photojournalists at the annual Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops, (an international platform and educational resource to promote young Asian talent) where I lived.

A photojournalist is a visual storyteller and by photographing, editing, and presenting images, a story is told in a way that no other media can. Photojournalists go to great lengths to get great photographs and will capture the best and the worst moments in a person’s life as well as very volatile situations.
I aim to capture meaningful photographs that are authentic, honest and that represent the character and the atmosphere of the subject. Since I am trained as an artist and designer I am able to create good compositions and to see and portray my subjects from a different perspective that expresses their character or style.
