This selection of bold, colourful imagery is a visual diary from the past few years. Shot all over the world, the images explore and evoke memories of childhood, travel, family and celebrate solitude time.
Amanda Fordyce is best known for her bold, colourful imagery - exploring the relationship between fashion and lifestyle. Having begun as a visual artist, and now an established photographer, Fordyce’s approach explores many genres. Her style is often rooted in reality yet highly aesthetic, playing with bold colours, shadows and unusual compositions, and always considerate of the small details that flawlessly capture the moment. No matter what the medium, her unique style is apparent across all of her work creating a cohesive collection undeniably her own.
A true-nomad, travel has become an intrinsic part of Fordyce’s work and life. This has helped her create an expansive portfolio, almost journal-like in nature, with a vast collection of engaging portraits from colourful parts of the world. It is here, in unknown corners and majestic landscapes, with unfamiliar faces and foreign cultures, where Fordyce finds connection. Her ability to capture the human condition in it’s most vulnerable sense, and frame it to perfection, creates a body of work that portrays magic even in the most most mundane scene. Her visual poetry stirs a yearning for more, the untold story of her subject that can be at once haunting and exhilerating. As Ali Mitton of LiveFast said, “She is the rare intuitive photographer that brings out the unexpected beauty of everything and everyone she shoots. We are lucky to glimpse the world through her careful lens, where even the most ordinary moments are elevated to extraordinary.”
Amanda currently splits her time between Melbourne, London and Barcelona, and is available for collaborations globally.

Headspace is the National Youth Mental Health Foundation providing early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year olds, along with assistance in promoting young peoples’ wellbeing. Using photography as a means of dealing with some difficult times growing up and my love of communicating through visual story telling, my aim is to become more involved with Headspace in the future. Research shoes that 75% of mental health issues emerge before the age of 35. By treating these issues early and providing a holistic model of support, the risk of them developing into more serious problems is greatly decreased.
