Hester Brodie's work uses autobiographical narrative to describe both her own and the other people in her life's struggles with intimacy, loneliness and addiction. These often reflects wider issues such as mental health, social isolation and sexual abuse.
Originally self taught, Hester started using photography within the constraints of art whilst still a teenager. After coming out of heroin addiction she later studied photography at City of Bristol College then London College of Communication, before moving back to Bristol where she continues to live today.
Her work has been shown in various independent venues and has been featured in publications including The i, Arts Narratives and Edge of Humanity magazine. She is interested in moving away from the traditional gallery space.
