Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Rachel Lamb moved to Aberdeen aged 17 to study photography & filmmaking, subsequently falling in love with analogue photography and darkroom printing in the first year of her degree. Having inherited her father’s old analogue camera, Rachel began to move away from her Bachelors degree in Fine Art and explore photography at a deeper level; shortly after finishing her degree she moved to London and worked in various photographic roles before assisting at the highest level. Rachel has been focussing on her own work for the last few years.
Drawing inspiration from other people in the everyday, Rachel’s honest, relatable and empowering work captures unique portraiture through a feminine perspective. Recently, Rachel has completed a personal project for Public which captures the younger generation coming out of Glasgow in their own homes, which aims to rediscover the city through the people living there. Rachel shoots for editorial titles such as The Gentlewoman, Interview, Re Edition, Muse, AnOtherMan, Dazed, Document Journal and Beauty Papers.
