Lauren Hillsdon is a London-based photographer originally from Manchester. Her personal-focused practice includes the exploration of the self through everyday life, ideas of femininity as well as interior and exterior space. The importance of space is used to identify emotional connections, in particular how the home can influence and shape a person. Nostalgia and sentimentality infiltrates all aspects of Hillsdon’s work as she employs a documentary style through the use of analogue photography.
