Found photographs, archival imagery and constructed images of her own making form the basis of Alexandra Lethbridge’s research-based practice. Drawing upon a range of references and source material, she combines scientific theories with fictional constructed images, bringing them together as a form of storytelling.

Her work has been exhibited widely with recent exhibitions including Unseen Festival, Amsterdam, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Denmark and Christie’s Auction House, London.

She was a finalist for the ING Unseen Talent Award and Fotofestiwal Lodz, as well as being selected as a winner for the Format Festival Affinity Award.

Tamsin is an English photographer and architect based in London. Her work explores imprints on the landscape, mapping journeys from human to geological scale. Her major projects include Sleeper (2012-2015) and Born of the Purest Parents (2016-2018). Her photographs and books have been exhibited and published internationally.
 
“Fundamental to human life, for millennia we have sought out salt. A search for the familiar daily grain in the vast expanses of the salt mountain, pan, lake and vein. Equipped with a geologists toolkit I went out into the field, following well worn paths, maps, and google earth images. Born of the Purest Parents oscillates between the fragmented mineral specimen and the topographic survey. Through closely observed landscape features, scale and alienation are explored within both natural and man-made places.”
Tamsin’s first book, Born of the Purest Parents (2018) was self-published as a handmade limited edition of 35. The book concept was developed with Yumi Goto at Reminders Photography Stronghold, Japan. The book was nominated for the MACK First Book Award 2018, and shortlisted for the Kassel Dummy Award 18.
