Debby Besford

A documentary photographer and lecturer with more than twenty-five years’ professional experience, Debby’s love of Norfolk stems from her own upbringing on the Norfolk coast.

Debby Besford has a portfolio that ranges from international personal projects to the commercial and commissioned, each of Debby’s images captures her particular style of intimacy and authenticity. Inspired by the stories behind her subjects, Debby’s collection of work demonstrates her natural ability to capture a visual truth. Whether that is through a slant of light and shadow, a movement of the head, or a moment in the air.
Her recent series of portraits of competitive roller skaters offers a fascinating insight into the elite world of young skater champions, a world Debby was involved with at a young age, having been a champion skater herself. Her  insight as a performer informs the sense of personal achievement present in each proud portrait.
