Lucy Courtney

OCA tutor and assessor Les Monaghan looks at the work of BA Hons Photography student Lucy Courtney.
Les singles out a set of images from assignment 1 of Context and Narrative and Lucy’s ability to communicate something really direct. She lets us into her life where she is a wife and carer to her husband with Alzheimers. She uses her camera as a vehicle for human feeling, the images are immediately apparent and powerful. The frame is filled with details, the studium* as you move around wanting to look further.
