Seedscapes: Botanical Photography

Since its incep­tion in 1839, pho­tog­ra­phy has been used to explore and doc­u­ment seeds, plants and land use, local­ly and globally.

Since its inception in 1839, photography - called ‘the pencil of nature’ by photography pioneer Henry Fox Talbot - has been used to explore and document seeds, plants and land use, locally and globally. Ranging from specimen classification and proposals for agrarian developments to garden design and reflections on beauty in nature, Liz Wells will suggest ways in which photographs reflect cultural interests and attitudes.

She will refer to photography relating to contemporary ecological concerns, including examples from the exhibition Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature.

Liz Wells is a researcher, writer, and Professor Emerita in Photographic Culture at the University of Plymouth, and curator of the Seedscapes exhibition. She has curated several exhibitions on land and landscape in the UK and internationally. She is also a Friend of RAMM.

This event will take place online as a Zoom session. Details will be emailed to you in advance of the date. There will be an opportunity to ask questions
