About Me

Hi! I'm Lily, a fashion photography graduate from LAU.

As a multidisciplinary fashion photographer, I am deeply passionate about sustainable anti-fashion and the power of female collaborations. I have a keen eye for blending current societal issues seamlessly with contemporary trends, resulting in imagery that not only engages viewers but also promotes environmental consciousness.

I believe that fashion photography has the potential to be a formidable force for positive change, and I am dedicated to utilising my skills and artistic vision to make a difference in the industry. One aspect that sets my work apart is my interest in working with tactile materials. I enjoy experimenting with various textures, fabrics, and elements to bring depth and sensory appeal to my photographs. By incorporating tangible elements, I aim to create a richer and more immersive experience for the audience, fostering a deeper connection with the subject matter.

INSPIRATION

Experimentation, Physicality, Versatility, and Anti-Fashion...

At the heart of my artistic process lies a profound dedication to experimentation. It is through the exploration of unconventional methods and ideas that I continuously push the boundaries of my craft. Versatility and adaptability are fundamental pillars of my artistic style. I pride myself on my ability to seamlessly navigate through a spectrum of styles, enabling me to effectively communicate diverse concepts and capture the essence of various subjects.

The subject of anti-fashion, with its emphasis on challenging traditional norms and embracing individuality, continues to ignite my curiosity and drive me to explore new possibilities within the realm of fashion photography. By intertwining the realms of experimentation, physicality, versatility, and anti-fashion, I endeavour to create thought-provoking and visually captivating imagery that resonates with audiences on multiple levels.
