Current Research

My research in photographic culture focuses on land, landscape, place, and environment, as well as on photographic theory and practices.

I am currently investigating histories of botanical photography, about which remarkably little has been written, other than in terms of aesthetics. This interest arises from curating Seedscapes: Future-proofing Nature and seeking to situate the exhibition within contemporary and historical developments. I am working towards a proposal for a monograph on botany and photography, historically and now.
