Hollie Fernando (b.1991)
Hollie Fernando is a British photographer and director based in London. Known for her rich colour palettes and a dreamlike quality which imbues her work, Hollie creates arresting images which are both delicate and powerful at the same time.
Taking inspiration from classical painting, Hollie often revives these conventional allegories and symbolic features, subverting received ideas of how we view an image to create fantastical work centred in her own world.
Shooting with both a relaxed and thoughtful approach, Hollie always gets the best out of her subjects and has worked with a range of sitters from actors and musicians to her own siblings.
