Diggy Lloyd

Diggy Lloyd was drawn to photography and fashion for their inherent elements of story telling.

She was introduced to both as a very young girl when she and her sister would play dress up in vintage outfits and pose for their grandmother who was ( and still is ) an avid amateur photographer.

Diggy’s grandfather took note of her enthusiasm and presented her with his Minolta 5000. By high school, she began to consider that photography could be her future and a lecture in her junior year, delivered by Mary Ellen Mark, was her path to New York City as Mary Ellen asked Diggy to be her intern in her studio over her summer break. In her senior year, Mary Ellen invited Diggy to be part of her workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico. It was during this workshop that Diggy made up her mind that photography was both her passion and her calling. Directly upon her return to complete her senior year, she applied and was accepted to Parsons School of Design.

During her sophmore year at Parsons, she started to work for Annie Leibowitz and in her junior year of college, she attended school abroad in London at Camberwell College of the Arts.

Diggy’s colorful, energetic and authentic narrative style can be traced back to her first job as commercial photographer with Alice + Olivia who hired her to photograph their tour across America. She would spend a summer photographing girls across the United States in Alice + Olivia fashions.
