Answers on a Postcard — Third up in our Answers On A Postcard series, a visual q&a where photographers answer questions with their images, is unconventional London-based portraitist Lydia Garnett.

To celebrate Huck 46: The Documentary Photography Special II, our annual celebration of visual storytelling, we are having a Huck website takeover – Shoot Your World – dedicated to the personal stories behind the photographs we love.

In this regular series, Answers On A Postcard, we ask photographers to get existential and respond to a visual q&a with their images.

Third up is London-based photographer and editor of the amazing Accent magazine – “a global celebration of lives lived outside of the ordinary” – Lydia Garnett. Lydia’s candid portraits of the young and unconventionally beautiful capture the urgency and style of subterranean city life, and with Accent, she shines a light on other photographers shooting their corners of the world in their own unmediated way.
