Poppy is a photographer, designer and art director based between Norwich and London. Their work centres around their activism within the queer community, specifically focusing on diversifying representation of minority communities. Their work ranges from documentary photography to illustration and they have a soft spot for magazine design and DIY zine culture.
Poppy holds a BA in Photography from London College of Communication, where they specialised in editorial photography and book and layout design. It was following their BA that Poppy decided to study design in order to pursue a career in art direction.
In their time on the MA in Communication Design at Norwich University of the Arts, Poppy has created a zine on the relationship between queer identities and the occult, a nine-part poster series called ‘Redesigning Hell,’ created and illustrated a full-size Tarot deck and most recently, created a hardback book retelling the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice as a sapphic tale.
Outside of education, Poppy has worked as a photographer and art director for just over six years, amassing clients such as Getty Images, Refinery29, Dazed, NME and Dr Martens. In 2019, their Refinery29 shoot titled ‘Non-Binary Hairstory’ was selected for the editorial section of the Dec/Jan issue of Creative Review. You can find their full CV on their website.
