Lucy Hewett is a portrait, food and lifestyle photographer. Her work celebrates design, color and the simple pleasures of life and connection.
Midwest born and bred, she received degrees in both journalism and art from the University of Missouri and is now based in Chicago with her partner and several houseplants. Lucy makes photos of people and food and tells stories about art, travel, culture, hospitality, craftsmanship, home and design. Through her photos she aims to connect with subjects, become inspired and experience the joy of creating something collaboratively. She leads each project with kindness and curiosity and a healthy dose of hard work.
In 2018, Lucy was selected as a Lit List winner and recognized with a Communication Arts Advertising Photography award. She is a member of Women Photograph and her work has appeared in American Photography 36 and 37. Her current personal work explores memories of childhood meals. When not at work she she’s likely snacking somewhere in Logan Square, working on her chocolate chip cookie recipe, at a yoga class or taking a meditative walk along Lake Michigan. Just say the word and she’ll bring her tarot cards to set.
