Pippa was born in Canada and grew up in the UK. She spent a decade working in the film industry in NYC, London and LA.
It is probably fitting that she worked in the entertainment industry for so long as her friends describe her as intense, dramatic and empathetic, all qualities that inform her artistic voice. Her guiding principle in documentary photography is trust. She seeks always to earn the trust of her subjects and so produces images that are sensitive, vulnerable and honest. Just as she learnt from her time studying theatre, there is no greater beauty than when we are truly our authentic selves. The desire to capture this authenticity drives her decision-making as she documents through photography.
