“Tamsin Green’s work uses graphic representations of landscape to act as a pathway into how we map the world, how we see the world, and how we feel the world.”  Colin Pantall

The photographic work of Tamsin Green is based on fieldwork undertaken to explore scale and substance in the subjective representation of landscape. She works iteratively, using the artist book as a medium to examine her findings, often combining photographs, archival material, text and drawings. In 2021 she established manual.editions as a platform to publish her handmade books in an environmentally conscious way.

Her projects include Born of the Purest Parents (2018), a research into the landscape, cultural history and science of salt. And this is how the earth must see itself (2021), where the Ordnance Survey mapping system and symbols are used as a guide to explore the British landscape.

The natural world is at the core of Tamsin's work and she is committed to making her practice low impact and sustainable.
