The Life of Riley

NUA Photography Graduate Ashleigh Berryman

Ashleigh Berryman is originally from Surrey and is graduating from Norwich University of the Arts with a first class honors degree in photography.

The Life of Riley

‘She is passionate about still life photography and photo montage and uses these mediums to visualize her passion for bringing the imagination to life. She strives to create unique and tactile imagery which engrosses viewers and evokes emotion.

Imagination is a key part of Ashleigh’s practice and she firmly believes in Albert Einstein’s philosophy that “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

Her use of still life photography and photo montage techniques aim to reinvent old family holiday photographs through the use of shared experiences in her series ‘Portals’ and visual puns to explore themes of childlike adventure in ‘The Life of Riley’.’
