Current Exhibition The Science Gallery London.



Allie Crewe, a recipient of the Portrait of Britain awards in 2019 and 2023 by the British Journal of Photography, has been commissioned twice by Arts Council England. Her recent portraits have been featured in The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Observer, Vogue, and BBC News. LensCulture praised her work, saying:

"These images have a lot of heart and empathy; they offer detail and a real sense of actual relationships. I feel like these images are, in some sense, an account of love and are timeless in that sense. They do not judge; in fact, they celebrate in a gentle and accommodating way."

Allie is compelled to capture the portraits of people who seek transformation, believing that a portrait should reach beyond the surface to be truly poignant, revealing a tender beauty. To her, photography is a poetic force that weaves stories with a touch of magic, aiming to unveil the inner landscapes of those she works with.

She invites participants to shape their representation, acknowledging the potential unease in the power dynamic and striving to create a more authentic and empowering image. Allie immerses herself in projects with the conviction that art can provoke new thinking and drive positive change.

"Highly rated, sincere, poignant, and classical." — Magnum Photo


Her work is held in private collections, available to buy and she welcomes commissions.
