Born in London and based in New York, Lucy Helton received her master’s degree in fine art photography from Hartford Art School, CT, in 2014. Rising from a necessity to express her personal anxieties and concerns about the environment, her first photobook ‘Actions of Consequence’ was nominated for the MACK First Book Award 2014, shortlisted for the Kassel Dummy Award 2015, and The Anamorphosis Prize 2015. Her most recent book ‘Transmission’ (Silas Finch, 2015) is a communication from our future to our recent past and it was shortlisted for the Paris Photo-Aperture First Book Award 2015. Helton is immersed in photo book making and has participated in various book fairs and festivals in New York, L.A., London, Germany and France.
