ABOUT CLAUDIA JOAN VYE
Claudia Joan Vye , British (b. 1983). Claudia grew up in the seaside town of Bournemouth. From a young age she was intrigued by the quirky, off the wall characters that British seaside towns attract. Fascinated by not only their aesthetic but their stories and human qualities.
At 17 She moved to London to seek out and immerse herself in the unconventional and unorthodox scenes. All the time taking in the styles and imagery of London's vibrant scenes. Memories that would influence her photography style.
Whilst working at The Dragon Bar in East London, a institution at the forefront of the London Graffiti Scene, Claudia was introduced to Street Artists Banksy and Ben Eine.
Later working as an artist’s assistant to painter Stella Vine, she assisted Banksy in Ibiza & commissioned Street artist Eine to paint Shoreditch Music Venue 333. Both artists have been huge influences on her photographic practices.
She later went on to work in Fashion & Music PR and events management for companies such as Mulberry, Frost French, Maharishi and Gina Shoes. In 2010 Claudia returned to Education where she studied Creative Direction at The London College of Fashion, before moving on to a Degree in Photojournalism at London College of Communication.
Since graduating in 2014 with a First Class Honours, Claudia has worked for a number of London newspapers and magazines including several placements on the picture desk with The Sunday Times Magazine.
