William Lakin is a photographer based in London currently working on personal, self led projects and working as a teaching assistant at Middlesex university, the same university he studied at and graduated from in BA Photography in 2013.
He is interested in current political and social phenomena’s and how this affects the psyche of those affected. By photographing around issues and practices he aims to approach his subject indirectly; focussing on our immediate surroundings in an effort to communicate the interconnectedness of our shared experience and how even the apparently ordinary can be symptoms of a bigger social construct.
Since finishing university he has won and been shortlisted for multiple awards as well as being exhibited internationally in France, Portugal, Switzerland and the UK. He is currently studying for an MA in photography and working on commissioned work.
