Our Through the Lens interviews offer a never-before-seen view of our favorite communities. This time we look Through the Lens with Victoria Wright as she captures the variation and beauty of Seattle.
When photographer Victoria Wright first started shooting in Seattle, she didn’t do it alone. Instead, she would go on hikes with mentors and friends or ride the ferry with them to one of the city’s islands. Discovering different parts of the city together, each would capture the journey in their own style.
Twelve years later, Wright is the mentor, sometimes leading workshop tours or photo shops. It’s not as organic as it was in those early days, which are still her favorite memories of viewing her community through the lens, but it still gives her the chance to continue exploring the town that has captivated her for so long.
We spoke with Wright about her experience at the Sheraton Grand Seattle and how the city’s artistic community inspires her to this day.
