Born in England and daughter of artists. Ophelia studied Photography at Nottingham Trent University graduating in 1998. She then moved to London to work for Dazed and Confused magazine. After 1 year in London she began shooting for trend magazine The Face 1999-2003. She has since developed personal projects in London, Paris and New York.
Ophelia has been interested in the subject the “teenager”, focusing on their behavioural patterns and how they express their identity through fashion as they are moving rapidly through adolescence. She has been documenting kids at the "Underage Festival" for the past 4 years, which has developed into a book and foreword written by Craig Mclean.
Concurrently in New York City, Ophelia has been developing a portrait series on Afro-punks for the past 5 years. She has produced a strong series of graphic photographs in fashion and especially portraits that help to document this movement. Ophelia's portrait and reportage collections are varied and include work for Vogue, Teen Vogue and W magazine. She has also shot projects for The Sunday Times featuring British Lidos and a story on Autism. Ophelia has worked for high end brands Adidas, Nokia and young hopefuls for Lloyds TSB Olympics campaign and has exhibited at Wieden + Kennedy, London.
