ABOUT REGINA

Regina Ray started her photography practice in the mid 90’s and this led to her Master’s in Photography at the Cambridge School of Art in 2017.

Regina’s work is often described as ‘visceral’ and reflecting powerful emotional responses to her subject matter beyond the figurative. She sometimes refers to her approach as spontaneous and instinctive. Her photographs are often concerned with an entanglement of emotional responses to visual elements like texture, feel, reflection and colour yet with a twist of the unexpected and with an unpredictable definition of established thought processes.

Another part of her work is an exploration into the complexities of human relationships - in particular her fascination with human interactions and the emotional world of humans whether in isolation or as part of a social group, are a major inspiration in her photographic practice.
