Niamh Donnelly 

b. 1998

Niamh is a UK, Wakefield based photographer, particularly interested in the relationship between places, spaces and people. She strings together poetic sequences of smaller, quieter moments that, when together become larger than themselves, forming narratives within. She photographs with the intent to understand a place and its significance to both herself and others while championing the craft of traditional techniques.
