Becky studied at Truro College and Falmouth University, where she graduated with an Art & Design foundation and a BA Hons in Photography. Her work is shot exclusively on film, embracing the slower and more considered approach it allows.
Becky was featured within The Exchange & Newlyn Art Gallery show Many & Beautiful Things as part of Fragment 24a, the gallery’s collective of emerging artists aged 30 and under.
For The Box State of Emergency micro-commissions Becky has produced five portraits of people from her surroundings: Bridie, a nurse; Dorothy and Donovan on the beach; Auntie Debbie at work in the fruit & veg shop; Mikey. A lifeguard of over 10 years; and Rosalyn, who works at a beach takeaway.
I realised my huge privilege at living in a rural area, in the wilds down towards Land's End, at a time where we were bound to our houses or the places we could reach on foot. I am lucky that I am surrounded by nature and can walk to the beach to swim in the sea if I like. That felt like the ultimate freedom at a time where autonomy was something to be fiercely appreciated.
