Intro to projects:
I wanted to evoke the feeling of alienation, to reflect how I felt about moving to a city. Canary Wharf was the best visual area in London which I found helped me present this feeling. There are lots of tall buildings and masses of people in suits; rushing to get where they need to be and not noticing me or my camera.
Let’s Get Drunk at the Graveyard
I had a particular interest in the different perspectives of the church at Harrow-on-the-Hill. On first impression I was overwhelmed by the view, but when I turned around to walk back through the graveyard I was shocked by all the garbage that had been left on the ground; in particular, can of beer and cider. I didn’t understand why people would do this; how is a graveyard an appropriate place to drink with your friends and then leave all your rubbish behind.
Lucy Dack is a photography student currently studying at the University of Westminster. She uses photography as a way to show her personal feelings about the world around her. It is her own experiences that influence her work; using photography as a way to capture and understand them. She also likes taking more of a sociological approach to her work; looking at how people interact with each other and experimenting with how they perceive different things.
Street photography and portraiture are what she is mainly interested and has taken influence from photographers such as Robert Frank, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Thomas Ruff.
