Rachel Cunningham is a photographic artist and lecturer in photography on both the Full Time and Part Time BA Photography courses at the University of Westminster. After graduating with a BA (Hons) fine art from Middlesex University she worked in the photographic industry for several years. She gained her MA in Photographic Studies (Distinction) at the University of Westminster.

Her photographic practice explores the construction of myths through representation. She is particularly interested in myths created through photography, painting and literature. She has worked, among other things, on the representation of news in photojournalism; on memory and representation; and on myths linked to territories, borders and belonging. Her current research explores the materiality and tangibility of photographic production. Her work has been selected for a number of exhibitions and is held in private collections both in the UK and abroad.
