Maggy Milner graduated in 1990 from Derby University
with BA (hons), lectured in
Photography at local universities until 2005, has received commissions for book jackets and
publications, while working locally as a social photographer. She continues to exhibit widely.
She is interested in the way the banal and commonplace can become extraordinary when
photographed in a certain way, the use of symbolism to convey ideas, and the blurring of
boundaries between conventional “discovered” photographs and the “still life” genre which
fabricates an imaginary world.
