Marilyn Stafford is a remarkable British photographer who lives in Shoreham-by-Sea. She worked mainly as a freelance photojournalist based in Paris in the 1950s and early 1960s, then in London, travelling to Lebanon, Tunisia, India and elsewhere. Her work was published in The Observer and other newspapers. Stafford also worked as a fashion photographer in Paris, where she photographed models in the streets in everyday situations, rather than in the more usual opulent surroundings.
She has recently published a retrospective of her work, “Marilyn Stafford: A Life in Photography”, encompassing a wide selection of photographs from her international archive spanning five decades from 1948-1983.
Other books by Marilyn Stafford include “Silent Stories: A Photographic Journey Through Lebanon in the Sixties” and “Stories in Pictures 1950: A Photographic Memoir” of Paris in the 1950s.
In 2020 she was awarded the Chairman’s Lifetime Achievement Award 2019 at the UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards in London.
