Tessa Sinclair’s images portray the ‘places’ that we feel, as much as the ones that we see, whether they depict the Southern Ocean, the windswept marshes of Suffolk or a moonlit garden. They engage with our inner world and the emotions that we experience when we are in a ‘place’, be it harsh and remote, or still and familiar. They tap into that subconscious seam within each of us that responds to being immersed in nature. Many of her images feature the marks of human presence which signify the connection we have with the land. This therapeutic quality of ‘nature’ has become familiar to so many of us over the last year and has been a lifeline to many.
Tessa’s first book ‘Here is all I want to be’ was launched at Aldeburgh Gallery in 2017. It was an elegiac collection of Suffolk landscapes interwoven with a poetic text and was shortlisted for the Encontras da Imagem, ‘First Photobook Award’ and exhibited in Braga at the photo-festival in 2017.
