Tabatha Forbes - Photography

For the past decade Tabatha Forbes work has been concerned with the collection, identification and documentation of flora and fauna during the 18th and 19th century European voyages into the South Pacific. As well as the marriage between science and art, the way that place was perceived and valued beyond the existing indigenous nature and culture has been an on-going fascination for her. Forbes' recent work combines observational studies with her doctoral research which considers place, both at large and intimately through painting, post-photographic practice and video.
