Hi! I’m Polly,

A mental health advocate & photographer

I am an image maker concentrating on portraiture and documentary photography. I am particularly interested in creating pictures that explore mental health, wellbeing and self reflection in a non exploitative and non romanticised way. I take inspiration from literature and music and am influenced by photographers such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Paolo Roversi and Sukita.

I want to tell stories.

Photography is not just about taking pictures, it's a way of documenting and educating. It's also a conversation between photographer and subject and the building of a relationship whist creating a safe space. These connections are what inspire me and they inform the stories I want to tell.
