Mandy was born in Bolton, Lancashire, but have spent most of her life in the South, although she considers herself a proud northerner!
She is a self-taught photographer and bought a film camera, age 17, with her first six months wages. Initially, rather reluctantly, she changed over to digital eight years ago.
She looks for the unusual and candid in everyday things and situations setting the camera manually to avoid digital editing afterwards, wherever possible. Previously, she has exhibited at the Guildford Institute – including a very successful solo exhibition.
The photographs in this exhibition are an insight into how we interact with our coastline and beaches.
More of her work, and contact details, can be viewed on her website. www.mandymillyardphotography.co.uk.
