Common Era by Lucy Shortman (Collated Observations ISSUE.07)
Collated Observations is a series of regular photozines showcasing aspects of modern life through the lens of a different UK-based photographer each issue. This seventh edition has been appropriately curated by London-based photographic agency ISSUE.07.
ISSUE.07 and ADM Publishing are proud to present a new project by Lucy Shortman, a photographic artist based between Birmingham and London working predominantly in a fine art context.
Common Era is a body of work spanning the duration of the artist’s year since graduating from university. Referencing a contained moment in time, it blends the line between art and life, documenting the emotional energy of sensory experiences. Disjointed yet teasing, the language of the work underpins the spirit of youth, nature and beauty. Through the inclusion of the self and intimate portraits, the photographs explore the versatility of the performative roles between the artist, camera and figure.
