Tori Ferenc is a portrait and documentary photographer, born in Gniezno, Poland in 1989. After finishing her BA in English literature and South African studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, she has moved to London in pursuit of her dream of working in the photography industry.
In her practice, Tori is focusing on the themes of identity, community, and most recently, parenthood. She is interested in documenting the reality of communities that are often marginalised by society – from Orthodox Jews in North London to Irish Travellers at the horse fairs, and Romani bands in Serbia. Her personal projects have been featured in The Guardian, It’s Nice That, AnOther, Vice Poland, i-D UK, Pylot, Trip Magazine, Vogue Italia, Splash & Grab and more.
Her experience in portrait photography allowed her to work with a wide range of magazines and commercial clients, such as The New York Times, Nike, Cardhu Whisky, Washington Post, Financial Times, The Telegraph, Time, Bloomberg, and more.
She has been shortlisted in the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward Awards (2017 and 2019) and her work has been shown at the Royal Photographic Society International Exhibition in 2017, Portrait Salon in 2018, and Palm* Photo Prize in 2020. Her most recent project In Waiting, exploring her own motherhood, has been a part of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize exhibition in 2021.
She works and lives in London.
