William Lakin (b.1992) is a photographer and researcher based in London currently working on a number of practice-based and curatorial projects, as well as teaching on the BA Photography course at Middlesex University. Lakin’s practice centres around shared narratives and ideologies. Using photography as a tool to isolate and disrupt symbols of power and culture, his work reveals how the apparently ordinary can be symptoms of larger social constructs. Approached with the objective of using his art practice as an exercise in problem solving, he develops visual solutions to communicate abstract phenomena. His work has been exhibited in the UK and overseas and he regularly speaks publicly about his practice, most notably at Paris Photo 2017. He is also the founder of 46 Space, a new online project space for contemporary photography.
