A meditation on longing.

“Me entro el garrion” es una expresion de la añoranza para los cubanos cuando el sentimiento de extrañar a sus costumbres, familia, hogar, amigos, se vuelve muy fuerte.

“I got the sparrow,” is an expression for when you miss in a strong way your habits, family, friends - when Cubans can’t handle that feeling they say that.

Lorna’s wanderlust as a child was fueled by whimsical family adventures with her Dad.

Daydreaming of sparkling oceans, Lorna left Scotland, after studying architecture at Glasgow School of Art, to explore sunnier lands. Always travelling with a camera, happenstance threw her into the world of visual storytelling.

A sucker for Romeo and Juliet, she was thrilled to work on Baz Luhrmann's epic 'Australia' as her inaugural feature film. Combining her love for adventure and film, she camped under the stars in the Australian outback, and then back in the film studios she was thrown into Visual Effects, where she worked alongside great directors and cinematographers creating magic on the film set. Lorna's film resume includes Narnia, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, J Edgar Hoover and The Night Manager.

4 continents, and many serendipitous journeys later, Lorna is a photographer and filmmaker based in Vancouver, Canada. Her photographic practice, influenced strongly by her work in feature film, is primarily focused on portraiture, street and photojournalism.

Lorna's photographs have been used in press publications, feature films, and by charitable organizations. Awards include a BAFTA nomination, and an IPA Honorable mention in the 2020 Press Photo Category. Her work has been exhibited by Lens Culture and  in 'These Days - Works in Isolation', a group exhibition documenting our time in lockdown.

'Looking through the lens helps me express myself, and there is nothing I like more than following my curiosity, intuition and love of people.'
