This week’s second post is a mini artist feature- from 19year old Photographer Tilly Edgley!
We couldn’t be more excited about Tilly’s work and to see where her talent takes her in the future!…
Q1: What is your Name, Age, and Where are you based?
A: My name is Tilly Edgley, I’m 19 years old and am based in Stoke Ferry, Norfolk.
Q2: What is your creative practice/ Artwork?
A: I’m currently studying a Level 3 Photography degree!
Q3: Are there any main themes you explore in your work?
A: Prior to photography I studied art and design, and have always been obsessed with Portraiture! From the very beginning, I ruled out anything landscape, still life etc… And knew that I wanted my work to be surrounding people. I have a lot of appreciation for things that have been well put together and the smallest of details have been considered. I think music is a good example of this and I’ve always found inspiration from album art, music videos and lyrics. They make for good prompts.
Q4: Highlight one of your biggest inspirations!
A: I actively address themes that other people tend not to. For example, I love images that make you feel uncomfortable, exposed but also intrigued. I like to pay attention to what people love to see and what they choose to avoid and make something that challenges that. One Artist who I take inspiration from is Tomas Xio Oliveras I love the style of their drawings, and always wondered how they would look as photos.
Q5: Where can you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
A: In 5 years time I would’ve finished uni, so hopefully I’ll be getting a job! As it stands right now I’d love to create images for magazines, go down a more editorial route. But I’m really open, my motives may change. I may want to create something more meaningful depending what takes my interests and what I feel needs addressing. Overall I just hope I’ll just be happy and enjoying whatever I’ve chosen to do!
