Lily Bertrand-Webb

Lily Bertrand-Webb is a West London-based artist from Dominican and English heritage. From a young age, photography and film have helped her overcome the difficulties of losing her hearing.

Lily's Style

Lily is fascinated by the honest and dynamic portraits of the youth of photographers like Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Juergen Teller as well as the icons of the surrealist movement, Man Ray, Lee Miller, and Picasso between many. Her work is influenced by these artists, translating these vibrant characteristics into her own portraits of urban and rural Britain.

"My photographs celebrate the jewels of Britain, the cityscapes and country life.  A collection of modern day Britain, urban and rural, daytime outdoors stuff as well as fashionable nightlife shots. From the urban London streets to the rural Yorkshire Moores, wild Cornish Heath, wild Cornish waves." 

“As an artist, I am constantly searching for the imitation of sounds in my daily life, through both silence and the electronic sounds that my cochlear implant gives me." - Lily Bertrand-Webb

The Precious Stone

"‘This Precious Stone’ is a photographic series of the peoples, landscapes and memories of Britain through my eyes. Inspired by the line “this precious stone set in the silver sea” from Shakespeare’s Richard II, the collection celebrates the jewels of Britain, from the city to the countryside / urban and rural." - Lily Bertrand-Webb, The Precious Stone
