Lucy Jarvis is a British Artist, Photographer, and Environmental Activist whose practice engages with rewilding, permaculture, and ecological anthropology. With a particular interest in conservation land management, enclosures, and personal stories her work draws on a multifaceted approach to observation and documentation. Jarvis' practice is research-led and as one that is primarily lens-based tends not to be heavily concerned with the technicalities of photo-making.


Born in Essex, Jarvis graduated from University for the Creative Arts in 2017 and Belfast School of Art in 2020. She has taken part in several group exhibitions within Europe and has work from her series Walking Home included in the bookRoom collection at University for the Creative Arts.

Jarvis is also a member of A Family Of Seven, a photography collective formed of seven artists and graduates from Belfast School of Art, Ulster University. A Family of Seven aims to redraw the contemporary lines of photography with a collective intimacy of their individual projects, their stories are ones of physical, metaphorical and challengingly emotional places, embracing the medium of photography in all its constellations and their combined recognition of their photography as its own language.
