Heading up the new Photoplay Photography arm is partner
and executive producer Alison Lydiard (pictured above, right with
Photoplay's Oliver Lawrance). Previously the general manager of
Griffin Theatre Company and producer of Publicis Mojo's Roche
Contemporary Art Prize, she has also worked as a senior art buyer at
Saatchi & Saatchi and as creative services manager at Y&R and
brings a valuable agency-side understanding of what clients need.
Producer Ross Colebatch, who has consulted to the Moran Arts Foundation
and Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, supports Lydiard in the role.
Says Lydiard: "Our
photographers create their own individual image of beauty and provoke
things differently. I'm so excited to join forces with
executive producer Oliver Lawrance and the Photoplay team who are
visually arresting storytellers that understand the equal importance of
narrative; whether it is across film or in photography and in new types
of collaborative projects."
Lawrance, EP, Photoplay: "Launching a photography arm of Photoplay is exciting yet
it also feels like a natural progression from the kind of work we
already do as narrative filmmakers, especially in the digital age, where
storytellers are increasingly working across both film and photography.
I'm thrilled to have our photographers and film directors working in a
creative space which encourages this kind of cross-pollination and
collaboration from the outset."
The introduction of the
photographers alongside the film directors at Photoplay sees the launch
of their new website photoplay.co
, designed by Christopher Holt.
