I am a self-taught creative photographer based in Lancashire, UK. My main practice involves slow and mindful photography that conveys the magic and delight of nature.
My background is in psychology (BSc, MSc, PhD), which blends beautifully with artful endeavours and visual storytelling.
I often integrate poetic prose with image sets as part of the flow of a photography walk.
My work aims to be playful, curious and meditative. The viewer is invited to tap into their senses, whilst I savour the complex ways photography offers a path to self- and meaning-making.
Projects currently working on includes an ongoing documentary mixed-media project that includes stills and abstract/ICM photography and poetic prose to convey the sensory experience of walking dogs in nature. This is called ‘We walk and we’re free’.
I also have an ongoing project combining golden hour photography with self-authored poetry that is intended to be shaped into a book for publication.
Being part of a photography club called ‘Creativity Beyond the Camera’ and enjoying lively connections with other creatives online is something I value deeply and that continues to shape my development as an artist.
I have two Instagram accounts: @deelisterphotos (main account) and @myicmreality
