Bio

Billy Barraclough (b. 1994) is a photographic artist based in London. Directed by his curiosity in the relationship between people and their environment, his work to date has explored ideas around identity, emotion and personal history. Barraclough is interested in weaving together loose narratives that play on the metaphorical potential of photographs. He is a recent graduate of the MA Photography programme at Bristol UWE. 

Barraclough was recently selected by the British Journal of Photography as one of their 'Ones to Watch' as well as being selected as a FUTURES Photography talent of 2021.
