Leo Maguire (29) is from the UK. He discovered photography at art school and went on to attend the renowned documentary photography course at the University of Wales, Newport. During his time there, Leo’s work was recognized with a commendation by the Ian Parry Scholarship. His interest lies mainly in the pursuit of long-term projects that examine barely known subjects from within. A recipient of a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography, he spent three years gaining unprecedented access to the world of bare-knuckle fighters in Britain’s traveler community. His first feature documentary film commission from True Stories/More4 will be completed in 2011.
