AnthropoSEAne H CO is in response to my growing concern for our ocean, the health of which is integral to maintaining a balance that supports all life on Earth. Referred to as ‘climate change’s evil twin’, ocean acidification remains, for the time being, on the fringe of the environmental discourse.
Through my interpretation of the scientific evidence I am attempting to bring out of the shadows and make tangible, what is an evolving and abstract environmental issue.
With a discord between initial aesthetic and the subsequent environmental message, my aim is to provoke an emotional response in the viewer, and for these images to be seen by people who can affect change to reduce ocean acidification.
Victoria is a nature photographer and expedition guide who divides her time between the UK and the remote, often uninhabited, regions of the world. This has fostered her deep connection with the environment and a passion for conservation.
Her love of the environment is reflected in her practice which comments on the beauty and plight of the natural world, as she aims to engage audiences in ways which will encourage the preservation of nature.
Through lockdown she began experimenting with alternative processes to bridge the gap between science and the public's understanding of environmental issues in particular, ocean acidification.
Victoria studied a BA in Photography, at Falmouth University, graduating with a first-class honours and is also an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.
