About Lottie


Lottie Davies was born in Guildford, UK, in 1971. She had a happy and conventional childhood in Surrey with her parents and two brothers, and was educated in Alton and Godalming. After a degree in philosophy at St Andrews University in Scotland, she moved back to England to learn the photographic trade as an assistant in London, where she has been based for the past fourteen years. Lottie has been working as a professional photographer since 2000.

Her fine art work is concerned with stories and personal histories, the tales and myths we use to structure our lives: memories, life-stories, beliefs. She takes inspiration from classical and modern painting, cinema and theatre as well as the imaginary worlds of literature. She employs a deliberate reworking of our visual vocabulary, playing on our notions of nostalgia, visual conventions and subconscious ‘looking habits’, with the intention of evoking a sense of narrative and movement. Sandy Nairne, director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, has described Davies’ work as “brilliantly imaginative”.

Yes, ok, red against blue; hardly makes it revolutionary though. But the ladies intense interest in a swimming pool drain hole is a puzzlement.
bottom image; first glance, confused city scape; second look - antenna's everywhere - metaphor for information overload hits the nail on the head.

I really enjoy the composition of both pieces. The colors are superb, the contrast in the colors is excellent. Keep up the fantastic work.

I love them both; the second picture really represents where my life is at at this point in time. It's my new desktop wallpaper

i dont know why, but these are perfection! i love how the second is so busy and the first is so quiet.

this is a very cool pic i found it on my iGoogle

this is a sweet pic i luv it

I LOVE IT!

wow just wow i love the red and blue contrast in the first picture with the woman in the pool and then the satellite dishes on the grungy buildings in the next is an amazing representation of how cluttered out lives are becoming...even with all this technology we live with we can still look out-of-date and ridculous...

strange
