Bio

Billy Barraclough is a photographic artist based in London. Billy is continuously fascinated by the natural world and our place within it. Whether it’s mountain ranges, plantlife, river systems, wildlife or anything inbetween, he has a tireless curiosity for nature and human stories. He uses photography as a way to explore and learn about the world, approaching projects with sensitivity and making work that blends portraiture, landscape, documentary and still life.

Barraclough is a graduate of the MA Photography programme at Bristol UWE. He was selected by the British Journal of Photography as one of their 'Ones to Watch' and is a FUTURES Photography talent of 2021.
