Laura Guy graduated in 2008 with a BA in Photographic Arts and a love for words and other people’s pictures. She completed her MA in Durham University’s Centre for Advanced Photography Studies with a thesis focusing on the early history of TEN.8 Photography Magazine.

Since 2009 she has worked with curatorial group Inheritance Projects and additionally curated and contributed to various freelance projects including ‘The Legacy of TEN.8’ symposium at mac, Birmingham and forthcoming programmes with International Project Space, Birmingham, and Tate Liverpool. Her current curatorial projects deal broadly with the desire to engage with the recent histories of leftist cultural production.
In 2012 Laura was awarded a studentship to undertake doctoral research within Manchester School of Art, where she also teaches on the BA Photography and BA Contemporary Art History programmes. Her PhD focuses on the relationship of the manifesto to history.
