Gweniver Exton (b. 1997) is a documentary and environmental portrait photographer based in London and South Wales. Her work tends to explore people within their comfortable environments, and the relationship to their belongings and surroundings.

Officially starting photography in 2015, Gweniver studied (BA) Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the University of Gloucestershire in Cheltenham graduating with 1st class honours. In 2023 Gwen graduated from Falmouth University with a merit in MA Photography.

"I enjoy working with people and documenting and telling their stories through images. I consider myself a environmental portrait photographer, reflecting how individuals portray themselves within their comfortable, safe environments. I am interested in human life and the human condition, what makes us who we are, and how the space and personal objects around us reflect that."
