Hutchinson is a photographic artist, designer and curator whose work researches the transformation of space and our relationship with the built and natural environment. Hutchinson's work is an expanded practice, exploring the photographic image within gallery and publication settings.

In 2020 Hutchinson founded acb press, an independent publishing platform set up to educate and create conversations around photo book publishing and design.
