Biography

Rachel E Joy Stanley is a freelance London-based photographer whose work carefully bridges the gap between fine-art and architectural photography. Her work is concerned with spaces and how we construct, occupy and engage with them. Largely observational, subtly critical and inherently concerned with form and function, Rachel's photographs attempt to organise and make sense of contemporary life, asking questions about power, ownership and the balance between natural and human worlds.
