Lecturer, Documentary & Editorial Photography BA(Hons)

Lottie Davies is an artist, writer and educator based in Cornwall and London. 

Davies’ work has won recognition in numerous awards including the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Award, the Arte Laguna Prize, and the Young Masters Prize. Her collaboration on Dreams of Your Life with Hide & Seek/Film 4.0 was BAFTA-nominated in 2012. In recent years she has developed her practice to employ moving image, audio, text and interactive installation alongside large format photographs. This mixed media approach was crystallised in her seven-year project Quinn which was widely exhibited across the UK and published in a limited-edition monograph in 2021.
