Debbie Naylor (b.1971) is a British documentary photographer and lecturer with over twenty years’ experience; practising, sharing and developing photographic practice across both the creative industries and the education sector. Sitting within the editorial and documentary genre her practice embodies a deliberate and consistent aesthetic that allows for narrative to be explored in subtle ways. Interest lies within current socio-political and environmental issues, asking questions about how we choose to live, hegemonic factors that may influence these choices and what it says about current contemporary society. Naylor has recently completed a Master of Arts at the University of Westminster, London (2019) in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism.
