For over 25 years Tessa has photographed rural life, working closely with individuals and communities to investigate how the landscape is shaped by humans. From hill farmers near her home in North Yorkshire to Icelandic puffin hunters, from Finnish ice swimmers to Romanian nomadic shepherds her projects reveal the fascinating intricacies of the dependencies between people, work and the land.
Recently she has worked with cider makers in Somerset (commissioned by the Martin Parr Foundation) and Morecambe Bay fishermen.
Her ongoing project FarmerFlorist explores the vibrant local ‘artisan’ cut-flower farms which have recently sprung up in the UK and is a celebration of domestic growers past and present. In 2019 she was commissioned by the North East Photography Network (NEPN) to produce new work about flower farming and technology in Lincolnshire which was exhibited at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens as part of ObserveExperimentArchive.
