Carrie Lees trained as a fine art photographer at St Martins and the Black and White School of Photography where she immersed herself in traditional printing techniques, producing exhibition-quality work. Her work is featured in many group exhibitions, including this year’s Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy, and in various Condé Nast publications. She subsequently worked as a successful portrait photographer for many years where she developed techniques that focused on the manipulation of natural light to create timeless images and printed using museum-quality papers. More recently she has experimented with using these skills and the same traditional methods to create similar “portraits” of plants.

Carrie is drawn to the beauty and fragility of the botanical world and aims to produce simple but structural images to portray the living essence of the plants themselves. She has been inspired by the work of the old masters of botanical photography in particular Anna Atkins, Karl Blossfeldt and Leendert Blok. Her technique is a combination of using traditional methods with a more contemporary take.

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy – your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
Annie Leibovitz
