About me

Lewis Weatherley is a lifestyle and documentary photographer currently based in Preston.

Originally from Newcastle, Lewis is a current student at Uclan studying BA photography and a graduate of Newcastle College in 2019.

Unsociably Distanced is a documentary series taken during the pandemic in a small village. My intention for this work was to document the pandemic itself and the feeling of being constrained to my suburban surroundings, in an original and compelling way. The subjects I chose to photograph often displayed some form of ‘distance’ from the place in which I chose to shoot e.g. a road or a hedge. However, they also contained an indicator of human life, like a single light on in the living room. My aim for this work was to explore themes of distance and isolation.
