BYO: How do you describe your style?
LUCY: Intuitive, revealing, reflective, kind
BYO: What inspired you to start shooting?
LUCY: I started shooting after picking up an Olympus OM-10 at a market stall just before a trip to Tasmania. As I was travelling, the camera became an anchor point for me to connect to what I saw and experienced. It gave me a sense of purpose, a sense of making illusive emotions tangible.
BYO: What’s been the most exciting project you’ve worked on so far?
LUCY: I am always the most excited about the projects I am currently working on, because I never really know where they are going. At the moment I am working on a series with a working title ‘Half Shade’. Through documentary, portraiture and still life, I am exploring and challenging my core relationships and beliefs as they ebb and flow, change meaning and gain new faces. I am thinking a lot about balance and symbolism in this series. I want to create a feeling of ‘on the brink of change' – a sense of nostalgia to the present moment.
BYO: What’s been the most unusual location for a shoot?
LUCY: A cliff face at the edge of a fjord in East Iceland.
BYO: Who or what would be your dream subject?
LUCY: Princess Nokia! In a butterfly sanctuary.
BYO: What was the last camera you bought and how’d you find it?
LUCY: I have been on the hunt for a good point and shoot for a while, and with an affinity for Olympus, got myself a 35mm mju-ii at Rewind Photo Lab.
