Rachael Talibart's photographs express her love of all things coastal. Working very much in the tradition of the 'sublime' in art, while also deliberately eschewing location-based landscape photography, Rachael seeks in her stark yet intimate compositions to convey the awe and exhilaration of being confronted by the ocean in its most tempestuous moods.
This is nowhere more evident than in the photographs from her critically acclaimed Sirens series, monstrous waves named after mythological beings. Although these strange, sometimes frightening, wave-forms were all captured during the storms that pounded the south coast in 2016 and 2017, the images are intended to transcend time and space, to expand our experience of the ocean and make us see the natural world in a new light.
Rachael Talibart's photographs have been published in books, print and online magazines, as well as being exhibited widely in the UK, Barcelona and New York. She is owner of f11 Workshops and runs residential photography workshops for international photography business, Ocean Capture. Rachael is in demand as a public speaker and writes for photography magazines.
