Photographer Olivia Arthur on Hull, Portrait Of A City

Olivia Arthur

We spoke to the Magnum Photos snapper about documenting Hull’s youth culture.


Capturing everything from a young Elvis impersonator to adolescent relationships, bodybuilders and pet snakes, Olivia Arthur’s stunning black and white photographs offer a refreshing take on Hull’s young people.

Exhibited as part of Hull, Portrait Of A City, alongside the work of celebrated documentary photographer Martin Parr, the images provide an honest portrayal of the individuality, identity and aspirations of Hull’s next generation of adults.

We caught up with Olivia to find out how she went about creating her work.

Hull, Portrait Of A City is on show here at Humber Street Gallery until 31 Dec.
