This is the first monograph of Helen Sear’s works selected from the 1980’s to the present day, drawing together themes which challenge the dominant view of photography as a documentary medium and questioning relationships between the eye and its surrogate, the camera lens. Focussing on both the human and animal body and the representations of landscape, the bodies of work are interwoven with a text by artist and poet Dr. Sharon Morris from UCL Slade School. Professor David Chandler of the University of Plymouth writes a text that contextualizes Sears practice over the last 25 years and its influence in relation to other key practitioners in the field.
