From the bookshelf: Rachael Talibart - 'Sirens'. / by Alex Bamford

 

If you haven't heard of Rachael Talibart, you will. She was named as one of 'the best outdoor photographers working in the UK today', a 'landscape master' Outdoor Photography Magazine June 2016. And with her new book "Sirens", she has gone from strength to strength with reviews in This is Colossal and Creative Boom following her being awarded Black & White Photographer of the Year 2018.

Rachael appears to have as much energy as the storms she photographs, she is owner of f11 Workshops, providing photography day workshops in the South of England and runs residential photography workshops for international, fine art photography business, Ocean Capture. Rachael is in demand as a public speaker and writes for photography magazines. 

Brought upon the south coast of England and spending much of her childhood at sea, it's no surprise that the ocean plays such a big part in her work. Inspired by The Odyssey, her series of storm waves captured off the English coast are named after mythological gods and sea monsters. 

Rachael will be holding a solo show at Brighton Photography Gallery in September.
