Stuart Whipps (b. 1979, UK) creates installations and books that tease complex narratives out of historic artefacts and moments. Recent works have utilised diverse material such as the collected speeches, interviews and statements of Margaret Thatcher, collected pieces of Scottish shale and found negatives from redundant South African photographic labs. In 2005 he won the Observer Hodge Photography Prize and in 2009 he was the joint recipient of the East International prize.
He is currently based in Birmingham, UK.
