Julia Hedgecoe Photographer

Profile

Julia Hedgecoe's freelance career started in London. Her strong black and white pictures
appeared most weeks in The Daily Telegraph for some years. She then moved her studio to Essex where, among other commissions, she worked for The Educational Supply Association, taking pictures for their catalogues of children playing and working with ESA merchandise.

Julia Hedgecoe's distinguished photography is well known throughout East Anglia and portraits commissioned by the University of Cambridge, for Educating Eve (Cambridge University Press), have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, London. The Gallery subsequently purchased a number for their permanent collection.

Her one thousand colour images of the storied, medieval roof bosses that lie high in the ceilings of Norwich Cathedral can be seen in her book Stories In Stone (A&C Black). The stunning beauty of these carvings which until this publication had never been seen, were used by Channel 4 Television for two programmes. A CD-ROM showing over nine hundred of these is available from the Norwich Cathedral Shop.

Julia Hedgecoe's most recently published book, In Good Company (Cambridge Arts Theatre July 2005) displays full page, her beautiful black and white portraits of many famous actors, actresses and theatre directors. This handsome book contains interviews by Nicola Upson and Mandy Morton.

Now, Julia Hedgecoe works from her studio in Cambridge and for some of the year from her house in southern Spain. Commercial and private portraiture is in constant demand from all age groups. Food photography and interiors are other areas of her work. Spain is a growing portfolio.

Julia Hedgecoe's work is distinguished by her love of light and a sharp eye for design and texture, with a very particular sensitivity for the humanity of her subjects.
