Phillipa Bloom

Phillipa is an artist photographer based in Hong Kong. A nomadic life across Asia and Africa has fed her deep interest in our interrelatedness with the land, and with each other. Phillipa visualises these connections as a means to contextualise and consider memory, identity and place. She is instinctively drawn to the sensory nature of landscapes and the intimate possibilities of portraiture.

She shoots both analog and digital and supports her personal work with private and commercial commissions. Her pro bono community work is a fundamental element of her practice.

Phillipa has exhibited at, among others, FOTO WIEN 2022, BJP Edition 365, Head On Photo Festival 2021, Festival Pil’ Ours 2022 and 2019, the Shutter Hub Open 2018 and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2018. She recently received an Honorable Mention in the 18th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards for four portraits in her series ‘becoming 12’. Her sold work can be found in homes worldwide.
