ABOUT ME

Lily Vetch is a London based filmmaker and photographer, working within analogue and digital processes across the specialisms of portraiture, documentary and fashion. Her main areas of investigation is understanding the South Asian LGBTQi+ communities in London and Bangladesh. Often shooting groups where she is an outsider, she constantly questions her position as a white, female photographer. Therefore her approaches to these collaborations are strengthened by years of meticulous research and lengthy conversations with members of these communities.

Lily has shot and directed for brands and publications including; i-D Magazine, Hero Magazine, L’Oreal, Khiel’s, Sony, Rahemur Rahman, Elle India, Jameela Jamil, The Uyghur Tribunal and the TATE Museum. Over the last two years she has spent time within London’s South Asian LGBTQi+ community as part of her body of work ‘Our House is Loud,’ which has been published by Jameela Jamil’s new media company; I Weigh. Lily has partnered with the British-Bengali fashion designer, Rahemur Rahman, to co-direct their first feature documentary, 'Body of Our Own.' about the Hijras (Trans) community in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Often shooting groups where she is an outsider, she constantly questions her position as a white, female photographer. Therefore her approaches to these collaborations are strengthened by years of meticulous research and lengthy conversations with members of these communities. She always structures her shoots by giving the photographed subjects control and ownership over their images, rather than the power laying with the photographer.
