Luca C Bailey

Luca C Bailey

Portrait Photographer

Luca C Bailey is a photographer based in Birmingham.  His series of portraits of women of all ages represents the ‘visibility’ of women today and the debt owed to the Suffragettes who fought for parity and visibility in a period of history when inequality was the norm. The portraits were taken in Aldridge, West Midlands a location of  particular significance as it is the home town of Ellen Isabel Jones who was a close associate of Emmeline Pankhurst.  Ellen was imprisoned in  Holloway Jail in 1914 for her protests for women’s suffrage. She endured days of hunger and thirst strike in protest at the injustice of  women not being allowed to vote. These portraits of women today are a homage to the courage of Ellen Isabel Jones and her fellow Suffragettes.
