Lucy Bedford Photography Exhibition
Tue Aug 6 @ 8.30 pm - Sun Sep 15 @ 8.30 pm
Lucy is a photographer based in York whose Yorkshire roots and attitude inject into her photography, whether that’s capturing local families and couples in their every-days and special days or photographing strangers on the streets.
Growing up, Lucy’s Dad was never without a camera in his hand and, in the years before iPhones, she documented her teenage years with a point and shoot $lm. After studying art and Linguistics, Lucy setled with her family in York, and picked up a camera again.
She is inspired by colour, design, architecture and typography and incorporates these themes into her work. Lucy is drawn to the characters on the streets that make up our passing, daily lives; whether at a local market or abroad in a tourist hotspot.
A large portion of her stories focus on Hull, where she was born, and the Yorkshire Coast, and she tries to portray to the viewer the humour and everyday beauty in these towns through her colourful work.
Over the last couple of years Lucy has photographed as she has travelled and work from Europe and the Caribbean is included in this exhibition. As with the UK work, she tries to explore as a local to capture the characters, architecture and stories of the street with vivid colour, light and a touch of humour.
