Perry Ogden was born in Shropshire, England, grew up in London and now lives in Dublin, Ireland. His photographs have appeared in countless magazines worldwide including Italian Vogue, Luomo Vogue, W, the Face and Arena, and he has shot advertising campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Chloe and Calvin Klein. These have supplemented more personal projects including the PONY KIDS photographs, which were published by Jonathan Cape/Aperture in 1999.
His photographs of Francis Bacon’s studio, 7 REECE MEWS, were published by Thames and Hudson in 2001 and exhibited widely at galleries and museums including The Hugh Lane in Dublin, the Fondation Beyeler in Basle and the Fondation van Gogh in Arles. His first film PAVEE LACKEEN (The Traveller Girl) (2005) won numerous awards around the world including the Satyajit Ray award for Best First Film at the London Film Festival and the Irish Film & Television Award for Best Film.
Recent exhibitions include: ‘Inspiration’ at the Sebastian Guinness Gallery, Dublin, July-Oct 2010 – a show of photographs which have inspired Perry alongside some of his own work; and ‘Twenty’ at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2011, a group show celebrating the first twenty years of the museum.
