Put down your smartphone, and step away. Step. Away. The Free Life is a magazine dedicated to inspiring female role models who exist in the world of adventure and action sports — one of the crew of creatives leading its ship is Hannah Bailey, a photographer with analogue at her heart.
Heavily inspired by the need to drop digital, Bailey’s outlook on life is to live it in the moment, and in a new series of analogue photography, the creative has captured female skaters who embody that spirit. From London to Copenhagen and Los Angeles, skaters like Brits Stefani Nurding, Lucy Adams, and Helena Long, and Americans Lacey Baker, and Samarria Brevard, have been captured by Hannah across a course of ‘skate stories’; five are on show in a new exhibition at Lomography’s Soho gallery-store.
Living for the joy of life itself, Bailey’s skaters are free-spirited, impulsive champions of the lifestyle her magazine promotes; the images capturing their uninhibited abandon in raw analogue glory.
The Free Life: Skate Stories by Hannah Bailey continues at Lomography Gallery Store Soho until 5 July.
