Lucy photographs rural life, currently focusing on her project 'Of Life and Land' exploring and documenting the richness of every day life in her home village of Ampleforth, on the edge of the North York Moors. Lucy feels incredible beauty in the ordinary daily goings on of the community she inhabits; treasuring its people, their connections with her, with each other, and with the landscape that holds them. We possess an indefinable spirit of community and rootedness to place, which is so precious.
Seeking light and shadow, people and goings on, Lucy records small, often unseen moments to portray fragments of rural stories. Using prime lenses and natural light, she produces signed, limited edition, black and white archive prints on pure cotton fine art paper.
Lucy has exhibited regionally and nationally, including at the Mall Galleries
