Born in South Wales, Jennifer Hughes grew up in Cardiff and relocated to France with her partner and young children 13 years ago. 

“I have always lived near the coast and I’m lucky to now live on the beautiful North Coast of Brittany. Living on the border of Côtes-d'Armor and Finistère, the area is varied with its rugged coastline and open countryside,” she tells The Local. 

“I’ve been passionate about photography since I was a teenager and living here has reignited that passion. I find it fascinating how a place, a scene, changes. There are so many factors, the weather, the light, my mood and the people around me. I try to capture the way that a place makes me feel, in that particular moment, on that day,” she adds.
