About me
Based in Somerset, UK, documentary photographer Naomi Wood, creates raw and intimate stories for brands and editorial. Her personal work explores the camera’s ability as a therapeutic tool and has been exhibited at The Southbank Centre and featured in BJP, It’s Nice That, Vogue Italia and Creative Review among others. Clients include: Oddbox, Courier Media, The Financial Times, The Sunday Times Style, Christie's Magazine, B.A.M London, The Times LUXX, Soho House and Crack Magazine. She is curator of platform @picturingparenthood, a visiting lecturer at universities and has written for publications such as Riposte. “...work like Wood's feels radical, tracing the early days of motherhood holding space for birthing bodies to be validated and free from shame. The project is a touchpoint for healing, connection and community.” - Gem Fletcher on ‘I Wake To Listen;’ Instagram @naomiswood
