Tracey Hill is a local photographer with an international perspective. She's lived on three continents but has come to call South Lyon her home.
Growing up in South Africa during the age of apartheid, Tracey observed the juxtaposition of incredible beauty and profound injustice. She struggled to maintain the family clothing factory in the face of dramatically changing social and economic realities, but in the wake of the collapse of the clothing industry, Tracey left South Africa to find a better life in charming Somerset in the West Country of England where she enjoyed a very different type of life in a dramatically different environment.
It was in South Africa where Tracey developed her sense of beauty among the mundane and derelict, but it was in Somerset where she had the time to reflect, and develop her artist's perspective, while traveling in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Today Tracey lives in South Lyon with her husband and three children. She continues her passion for travel and photography.
