ABOUT GEORGIE WILEMAN
Georgie Wileman is a portrait and documentary photographer who focuses on social injustice issues and their related emotional impact. She also has endometriosis and adenomyosis. After surviving six painstaking surgeries Georgie still battles PTSD from repeat medical mismanagement.
Georgie is incredibly passionate about documenting and amplifying the voices of those underrepresented in the media. Aside from THIS IS ENDOMETRIOSIS, Georgie’s work has opened up conversations about powerful & necessary topics such as trans lives in America and suicide in men. TO THYNE OWN SELF BE TRUE, portraits of trans lives in America, broke the barrier of the unknown and shed a spotlight on a community whose suffering from a rising number of violent attacks and increasingly limited government protections. BOYS DO CRY, her work documenting suicide and depression in men, works to face toxic masculinity head on and challenge the pervasive notion men can’t show any form of weakness or emotion. Suicide is currently the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45.
Georgie’s work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide and featured in international press including Forbes, Vanity Fair, Refinery 29, British Journal of Photography and more.
