Kathryn Sainsbury-Wilkes

UAL Art and Design Foundation Studies (2017-18) Distinction

BA (hons) Marine and Natural History Photography (2018-2021)


Drawing influence from the work of Wolfgang Tillmans, Rachel Whiteread and Mark Dion, I create pieces that lie somewhere between Photography, Sculpture and instillation. Working with or without cameras, I use my skills in the darkroom and the field to let nature do the talking for me, recording what it says instead of imposing my own story on it. My work pushes the boundaries of what might equate to wildlife photography
