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 in-between, 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.
