Lucas Birtles is a photographer, writer and curator living in Bristol, UK, who recently graduated from UWE with a First-Class Honors in Photography.
His photographic work is centered around psychological interpretations of stories. Through his interest in the motivations behind people’s actions and by looking at human connections through personal narratives, he attempts to explore our collective psyche further. Years of personal development in psychology has inspired and influenced Birtles photographic approach and practice. His written work looks at the curiosity of short stories and critical moments, often leaving more unanswered questions than what began.
Lucas hopes to continue his project, 'Something Silver, Something Black', in former Yugoslavia whilst building up a strong writing portfolio for photography focused publications.
