About

My name is Rebecca Lily, and I'm just a (tiny bit idealistic) (tiny bit oversensitive) girl who can be found with her head in the clouds a camera around her neck a lot of times. I love storytelling through images. I get my love of stories from my grandfather, only nobody can tell one quite like he can. I was born in the Midwestern USA and lived there until 2010, when I moved to Ireland to live with my husband Johnny Patience (who also shares my love of photography) in a little cottage by the sea. My favorite type of photography is conceptual fine art portraiture, but I also love documentary style travel, still life, and seascape. If you couldn't find me in any of my normal haunts, you'd probably find me somewhere by the ocean. There isn't a canvas I love more than the open sea. My digital work is shot on a Leica M9 + Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f/1.5 ASPH VM. I shoot medium format film on a Contax 645 + Zeiss 80mm 2.0, and 35mm film on a Contax Aria + Zeiss 50mm 1.7 and Olympus 35-SP rangefinder. My film work is currently developed at Richard Photo Lab.

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.
