Trope – Unfinished Stories
Released: August 2019
Lucy is one of Trope’s first three photographers in the Trope ‘Emerging Photographer’ series to receive a solo book. A new contemporary book series featuring the works of young and emerging photographers from around the world. Each book contains photographs with strong narratives from the artists.
Lucy’s first solo book ‘Unfinished Stories’ is a collection of photos and words that capture the daily lives of people. on the streets, in trains and at cafés, going through their day, often without much thought or notice, but captured in an indelible way by Lucy’s eye and camera.
“I never know what I’m going to capture, it’s all spontaneous and that’s what I love the most. I often find myself walking the streets for hours and hours taking photos. Every image I capture is the result of a little flicker that happens to catch my eye in such an overwhelming way that it becomes impossible for me to simply ignore.” LUCY HAMIDZADEH
Trope – London City Edition
Released: June 2019
Trope London, the second volume in the Trope City Editions series, celebrates the meeting of traditional and modern architecture that colours every view of the city. The collection highlights the photographic images of fourteen emerging and independent photographers from London and beyond.
This carefully curated and bound collection of 199 stunning photographs offers a new perspective of London. Each of the nine chapters is accompanied by a map, along with the locations where the photographs were taken. From high above the London Eye to deep within the Underground, these images command a strong point of view: digitally processed, filtered, toned, de-saturated, sharpened, for a very urban sensibility. Showcasing both the moody romanticism and striking modernism of contemporary London, the images reveal distinctive and dramatic visions of one of the world’s greatest cities.
To coincide with the release of Trope’s collection of books is a documentary series “One Frame”. The series profiling 10 emerging photographers including Lucy Hamidzadeh from around the world navigating through the complex social media world of Instagram. Their stories give a glimpse into the global stage that social media has created. These short films take Terry Maday’s team Maday Productions to locations throughout Hong Kong, London and Chicago for a unique perspective on urban photographers and their environment.
