Poppy Marriott is a rising star in the London photography scene, having photographed the likes of Declan McKenna, Black Honey and Peach Club. We chatted to her about finding photography, the importance of lgbtqia+ representation in music and her current creative inspiration. The future looks bright for this young and ambitious photographer, so keep your eyes peeled!
How did you get into photography?
Why do you think it is so important to document women and lgbtqia+ people in your work?
Not seeing people who look like you in magazines can really screw a young queer person up
You describe yourself as an avid feminist, how does this feed into your work?
Can you explain a little about why you choose to shoot in film instead of digitally?
Your photos often have strong colour palettes, how do you go about deciding on colour and composition? Or is it serendipitous?
so I don’t shy away from bright colours and high contrast.
Do you have a favourite project you have worked on?
Who are your main inspirations at the moment?
