Daily Rituals explores the intricacies and oddities of everyday life—from the way we rest our toothbrush on the bathroom countertop, to the spills and splatters that mark a busy day.

A photo essay by photographer Lauren Bamford and creative director and stylist Sarah Pritchard, that pokes fun at the strange and quotidian moments that make us human, reminding us that it’s the small details and entanglements in our lives that make them fascinating.

Photographer, Lauren Bamford, has an eye for complex composition, texture and a dash of humour. Lauren focuses on the genres of still life and documentary, allowing her to work within the worlds of editorial, commercial and fine art. Growing up on Australia’s east coast, Lauren immersed herself in the local music scene, documenting it over many years, and hand developing and printing in a home darkroom. Lauren has perfected her own formula for creating different intensities and temperatures of light, which evoke a connection to time and place.

Sarah Pritchard is an Australian born stylist and creative director who works seamlessly across multiple disciplines. Drawing from her background in Visual Communications, she works with thoughtfulness and a meticulous eye for detail. Often playful and humorous in her approach, she presents an unexpected perspective; linking ideas between art, film, music and fashion.

Lauren and Sarah first connected via Instagram and have since created a diverse and distinctive body of work that harmonises a cross-section of subjects. A day at the studio with Lauren and Sarah may include a scorpion, a ewe, sea urchins, challah, luxury cosmetics or artisanal creations by local makers. Whatever the subject and brief, Lauren and Sarah continue to present fresh perspectives in the genre of still life.

To complement the photo essay, Lauren and Sarah translate their subconscious responses to Daily Rituals by playing a word association game together.
