Lucy Johns, Teacher of Darkroom Photography and Fine Art Photographer.
My photographs are recordings of the everyday. They are of strangers, still lives, subjects within the landscape, objects and people that have made a mark on my existence. I like to arrange, observe and contemplate subjects inside and outside of the frame. I’m concerned for and have a great appreciation of the environment and our natural world.
I graduated from Bournemouth Arts University in 2011 with a 2:1 BA degree in Photography. My practice was centered around the ownership and qualities of antique 'found' photographs. I went on to explore their surface histories and appropriated them.
I was offered the job as Teacher of Photography at Rickmansworth School soon after graduating and have been teaching GCSE and A Level Photography in the Darkroom ever since.

The Photographs in Wonder Wander Ponder embrace universal feelings and experiences. The photographs are taken in Great Britain and throughout Europe (including Italy, Greece, Spain). These images evoke feelings of wanderlust and escape, exploring playful visual metaphors for relationships, sensitivity, longing and joy.

All photographs are completely unique and made by the hands of the photographer.
Each silver-based print is slightly different due to the nature of darkroom printing. Prints are available in a range of sizes and finishes on resin coated and fibre based paper.
Photographs are also available window mounted and framed.
