Photography / Ffotograffiaeth

"I love walking with my camera and document my photographs with ordnance survey grid references. I like the idea of taking the viewer outside of the gallery space and into the landscape to fully immerse themselves in nature. Each photograph is like an invitation to go outside and play."

Emma Barley, 2022
