Jude’s journey into photography began with having only 6 photographs from her childhood, that lack of story telling and photographic narrative of her life through images was a wake up call to make it her mission to ensure her children are visible, are seen and those precious moment of their lives are captured. That led her to want to make other things visible with the power of photography taking thought provoking, inspirational and unique shots of people, their lives, those moments, and many experiences that are captured forever and never missed.
Jude captures images with a unique perspective. She looks beyond the superficial to reveal the social and political narrative that has created any given moment. The composition of her work has the capacity to be illuminating and dynamic as she continually seeks to explore an alternative understanding of her subject matter. Jude’s technical approach to photography is refreshingly pure, with clear and simple principles of execution.
However she’s not afraid to experiment with form and content and she will take risks to access an image, risks that generate a breath-taking range from the grand to the intimate, sometimes effortlessly combining the two together. Jude is a photographer who will challenge your sensibilities to reinterpret your environment and she is an artist that encourages you to examine the reality of a moment.
Jude’s ability to capture a profound moment, using any camera including phones, and her talent to see situations that others may have missed led to her appointment as the official behind the scenes photographer of the Tour De France Grand Depart 2015. Jude's career has gone from strength to strength as she continues to document high profile events as well as more intimate projects and she continues to capture the essence of every adventure that comes her way.
