From nocturnal woods to wildlife specimens, Liza Dracup is inspired by the landscape and natural history of Britain. Field Work presents a decade of her work, exploring photographic representations of our environment and cementing Dracup’s standing as a pioneer of innovative approaches to landscape photography.
Dracup works with museum collections as well as directly with the natural world. She has a passion for selection and observation, and her work is imbued with the Victorian spirit of enquiry. Inspired by historic processes whilst embracing modern digital techniques, she uses photography as an experimental tool to see beyond the human eye. The resulting images range from vibrant ‘hidden’ landscapes to meticulously detailed studies of plants and animals.
This touring exhibition is the first major survey of Dracup’s work, and has been curated to to mark the ten year anniversary of Impressions Gallery in Bradford where it debuted in 2017.
Liza Dracup – Field Work is an Impressions Gallery touring exhibition curated by Angela Sheard.
