Field Studies: Walking through Landscapes and Archives by Chrystel Lebas

Field Studies: Walking through Landscapes and Archives by Chrystel Lebas brings together photographs, texts and archival materials gathered since 2011. Lebas has been working in collaboration with The Natural History Museum in London, using an unexplored collection of landscape Glass plate photographs and field notes taken by British botanist and ecologist Sir Edward James Salisbury (1886-1978) in the British Isles. ‘Over 100 years later, Chrystel Lebas adopts this same state of travel, transported by Salisbury’s historic
photographs. Her subject is—just like Salisbury’s was—the study of landscape environments and their inhabitant plants. Through photography and film Lebas traces the continual encounters between the forces of the wind and the sea with humans, animals, and plants.’ Bergit Arends
