Julia Hedgecoe is one of the most noted photographers in East Anglia. Her work spans a wide range of subjects, with portraiture always a strong element.
A graduate of the Guildford School of Photography, she was employed first by The Observer, soon moving to the freelance world and working regularly for The Daily Telegraph as well as other magazines and newspapers.
Julia moved to Cambridge nine years ago. Her photographs of patchwork quilts were published in The Patchworks of Lucy Boston (Colt Books 1995). Five years’ work photographing the high, medieval stone-carvings in Norwich Cathedral’s vaulted ceilings culminated in her recent, highly-acclaimed book with medieval historian Martial Rose, Stories in Stone (A&C Black 1997).
In 1996 Julia completed a commission for Churchill College photographing all the College’s Senior Fellows; she has worked for The Fitzwilliam Museum, CAM (Cambridge Alumni Magazine) and produced the photographs for Future Solutions: The Centre for Mathematical Sciences, a University of Cambridge fund-raising brochure. It won first place in the national Higher Education Information Services Trust Awards competition in 1997
