Hello, my name is Rebecca Powell, and I am a Kent based photographer with the aim to tell stories through conceptual photography. I began my journey as a landscape photographer and have slowly transitioned into having portrait and conceptual photography as my main focus.
I've been lucky enough to have my work in a few local exhibitions, including one held at The Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate. These exhibition projects meant a lot to me as it was to show what the local areas meant to me / how I saw them. I could tell a story without using words.
I have had the pleasure of doing a photoshoot for a rising musician's EP cover.
Photography has become a huge part of me and my life over the years. It has grown from a hobby to a dream career and for me that is a blessing. As I have gotten older, words have become harder for me to use as I no longer know how to describe my feelings and in a way that people will understand. Photography has become the perfect outlet for me to open up but also be creative - which was never something I would describe me as...creative.
I am influenced by many things; darkness, light, deeper meanings, interpretation, change. I know these are very broad but something that provokes thought is something that will attract me. There is light and dark everywhere, in every aspect of life. There is always something beyond the surface. The world is seen differently by each individual creature. In a world of opinions, many hateful and angry opinions; the world changes for the better and for the worst every day. This intrigues me. How humans cope, function and exist is so very fascinating to me.
