My personal projects often have themes running through them, for example a portrait series on the Afro-Punk movement in NYC. A self-published book on underage festival kids between 12-18 years old. I am fascinated by the subject of the “teenager”, focusing on behavioural patterns and how they express themselves and their identity through fashion. Having documented kids at the “Underage Festival” for 5 years, this developed into a book with a foreword written by Craig Mclean. This book came 2nd in the World International Photography Awards. My varied portfolio includes portrait and project collections for Vogue, Teen Vogue, W magazine, high-end brands such as Adidas, Quicksilver, Marc Jacobs, Easyjet and a series on ‘young hopefuls’ for Lloyds TSB Olympics campaign. I have just made 2 short films on Skater Girls JOSIE & RIANNE for i-D magazine with over 280K views. Also, directed New Look SS18 campaign film.
Ophelia studied Photography at NTU and her work has always come from a documentary style approach.
