Talk: Photographer Talk: Liza Dracup

Mining Institute, Neville Hall, Westgate Road, Newcastle, NE1 1SE

NEPN is pleased to welcome Liza Dracup to Newcastle to speak about her photographic practice.

The talk will start at 6.30pm prompt in the Lecture Theatre and will be followed by drinks and informal conversation in the Library until 8.30pm.

Liza Dracup is a photographer based in the North of England. The work she makes is in response to the landscape of Britain. Dracup is best known for her series of large-scale colour landscape photographs made between dusk and dawn. She produces work that broadens her photography in both a creative and academic context, as she is both an artist and lecturer.

Dracup’s work has been nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012 and the Prix Pictet (Earth) Photography Award 2009. She is currently working on a PhD by Existing Practice at the University of Sunderland on Photographic strategies for visualising the landscape and natural history of Northern England: the ordinary and the extraordinary.
