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 National Park. Lucy sees 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 uses prime lenses and available light, producing signed, limited edition, black and white archive prints on fine art paper.
Lucy has exhibited regionally and nationally, including at the Mall Galleries
as a finalist in the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year Award
in 2015 and 2016; at the Prince's Foundation
as Winner of Craft Photographer of the Year 2015. In 2015 her work was also selected for the second round of the National Portrait Gallery
Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize and in 2017 'Coconut slice' was Highly Commended at the Bowes Museum
'Only in the North' competition alongside the Tony Ray Jones & Martin Parr exhibition.
Lucy's work - held widely in private collections across the UK, Europe, Australia and the US - is available to purchase via PHOTOGRAPHS. Lucy is also represented by Watermark Gallery
