"Green’s practice reveals the idiosyncratic nature of the descriptive systems upon which we depend to organise our world, to make it meaningful, and to find a place in it. It shows us the land as we encounter it – in glimpses and fragments, missteps and experiments, changeable and proximate, seen and felt by a body in contact with its surroundings. And it invites us to recognise the distance between us and the world around us as one that we’ve created, to value the ground beneath us, and to think anew about the way that we inhabit our planet." 

Eugenie Shinkle, from the essay Drawn to Scale

Tamsin Green (b.1982) is a visual artist and architect based in London. Her projects include; Born of the Purest Parents (2016-18), a research into the landscape, cultural history and science of salt; this is how the earth must see itself (2019-21), where the Ordnance Survey mapping system and symbols are used as a guide to explore the British landscape; walking out of sleep: encounters with lichen territory (2021-).

She walks alone in the landscape, carrying her own shelter, and leaving no trace. Her book-making practice continues this dialogue with the environment, through hand folding and binding, bringing her into close contact with materials and processes. In 2021 she established manual.editions as a platform to publish her handmade books in an environmentally conscious way. Through her search for a more sustainable approach the Sustainable Photobook Publishing (SPP) network was born.
