Lucy Saggers

Back to Main Categories


Lucy is a photographer living in rural North Yorkshire, exploring and documenting the richness of every day rural lives. Her work aims to bring alive the beauty of ordinary, often unseen moments; to capture the textures, shapes and stories of real life. Walking with her Canon 5D, prime lenses and using natural light, taking a photograph is Lucy’s instinctive reaction to the beauty she encounters. Her work seeks a sense of connection with the narratives of rural landscapes and lives.
