Nancy Forde

Nancy Forde is a Canadian documentary photographer, Irish mother and visual seanachaí (storyteller). Professionally, she is a member of both Women Photograph and foto|RE and a contributor to Plan Arctic. Her work explores themes of isolation, belonging, erasure, memory and the sinew between humans and their environment.  Of special focus are reproductive and mental health and the rights of those most affected by targeted oppression and systemic failure to safeguard them. In 2018, she was nominated for the Royal Photographic Society‘s #HundredHeroines campaign for her ongoing documentary work, Womb, on how the uterus affects our lives. She is now pursuing an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at LCC, UAL, London (UK).  Her MRP Tundra aims to examine and challenge a colonial perspective of the Arctic as ‘barren grounds’. Nancy currently lives in Waterloo, Ontario with her son.
