Artist of the Week: Caroline Collett

Little Boat, Caroline Collett

Our Artist of the Week this week is Caroline Collett, a photographer currently based in Lyme Regis. Her work is varied and extensive - and she has had images included in numerous international publications over the years. Caroline's favourite subjects are architectural and maritime details, plants, flowers and portraiture. She seeks to capture those moments where reality is made abstract, hidden geometries and graphic forms are revealed, and the intricate interplay of light and shade. 

Here are a few images to wet your appetite: Caroline will be guest-blogging this week, and we will be showcasing her work throughout the week too.

Whale Bone, Caroline Collett


  1. I think the key word here is 'detail'ceratinly for me!the whale bone, the boat, the wharf timbers. People will often comment 'heh, I like that!' when their attention is directed; viewed as the whole thing; just another photo/record shot.Like my own macro shots of dahlia and raw oats eg.
    Candids, street and documentary images tend to galvanise your thoughts and interpretation i often find.
    Great viewing,

    Many thanks Mike. Yes, the camera eye is just the same as the human eye - we all look, we just then look again in different ways - more focused in, more obliquely or seeking pattern or colour. Really like your 'teasel' and sunflower shots by the way!

  3. As a fellow photography artist myself ( I commend any who dare put their work out for the public.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work Caroline.
