Mathushaa Sagthidas

A First Gen Tamil-British PhotographerLondon, United Kingdom
About me
Mathushaa Sagthidas is a first generation British freelance photographer, set designer and art director (studied at Camberwell College of Arts, UAL) with an interest in fine art and contemporary fashion. Mathushaa’s work often examines her identity - Tamil Eelam ethnicity and British nationality, which is reflected through traditions, history and fashion photography. ​ Identity, authenticity and representation are important to her because of her parents’ upbringing and experiences during the Sri Lankan civil war, which took place from 1983 until now. The history of the war, their own personal suffering and experience led Mathushaa to learn and embrace her ethnic culture, traditions and heritage more and more. ​ Her photography work spans a range of brands including Amazon, Wolf & Badger, Fashion United, MullenLowe, Adidas, Aterlier100 and Royal Court Theatre; publications such as Creative Lives, Glass Magazine, The Photographer's Gallery, gal-dem, Hypebae​, Fashion Minority Report, THIIIRD Magazine, Hypebeast, Dishoom, It's Nice That, The British Library and Graduate Fashion Week and exhibitions such as Tate Britain, PhotoFusion, BBH London, Lake Gallery, Camberwell Space Gallery, Rankin x Maryland Studio, Royal Greenwich Museums including billboards across the UK and a solo show with Bow Arts.

    PEPPER YOUR TALK ARTICLE - BUILDING RESILIENCE: HOW TO BOUNCE BACK FROM CAREER KNOCKBACKSThe fashion industry is notoriously cutthroat. As they say on Project Runway ‘One minute you’re in, the next you’re out. Take the once lauded industry darling – Hedi Slimane – who, as Creative Director of Dior Homme, inspired the late Karl Lagerfeld to slim down several sizes in order to fit into his collections. Fast-forward to September 2018, and Paris Fashion Week where his much-awaited debut for Celine was, to put it politely, slated. So, how do you bounce back after a week of unending criti
