I am Lydia, a 25 year old photographer and maker from Herefordshire, England.
Coastal beauty and rugged landscapes are a key focus in my work. I plan to spend much of 2017 on the road, with trips to Iceland and Norway and plans to spend the summer months touring the coastline of the UK.
This year I am seeking new challenges, so as well as shooting landscapes, weddings and portraiture I am interested in sharing the stories of others. Alongside writer Jennifer Frances Smith, I have recently founded ‘Erstwhile Journal’, an online anthology of individual expression and creative exploration. Not bound to a single concept, it seeks to serve as an open space, wherein people can share their thoughts, work and stories- however big or small. The beauty of Erstwhile comes from the diversity of it’s content. A literary anthology, a political forum, a travel guide, a photo album, a gallery, a lifestyle almanac, a book review, a quiet space for loud voices- Erstwhile is whatever you want it to be.
