So­phie Mer­rell’s photograph­ic journey

I was brought up in Lon­don and went to Ed­in­burgh Univer­sity where I stud­ied An­thro­pol­ogy. The sub­ject taught me a great aware­ness for and in­ter­est in dif­fer­ent cul­tures. When re­search­ing the ‘Night Flow­ers’, a sub-cul­ture based in Lon­don’s West End, I found that pho­tog­ra­phy was a pow­er­ful tool to record those I in­ter­viewed. I con­tin­ued my ex­plo­ration of people in India with my 35mm cam­era al­ways at hand.

Equipment: Nikon FM3, 35mm - All shot in 35mm film.
