Cover Image - Siân Davey

Siân Davey is a British photographer who turned to the artform in her forties, following a long career as a psychotherapist. Her images often contain traces of this expertise, with a focus on the intricacies of family and relationships. We discovered Siân’s work after the release of her photo book, “Looking for Alice,” and we featured her subsequent project on WePresent, as she turned her lens onto her adolescent son Joseph to explore their changing relationship. The feature was part of Refocus, our initiative to showcase photographic talent from under-represented groups, and this time we focused on age, to challenge an industry which too often prizes the newest and the youngest. Siân has held solo and group exhibitions across Europe, and was a winner at the Taylor Wessing National Portrait Prize in 2016.
