Photography Down The Line with Christina Riley from The Nature Library (recorded: 31 March 2021)
Ben Harman, Director of Stills: Centre for Photography in Edinburgh, speaks to Christina Riley from The Nature Library.
Christina Riley is an artist based on Scotland's west coast. Using photography, found objects, writing and installations, her work draws acute attention to the details of the natural world with a particular focus on the sea's edges. In 2019 she was longlisted for the Nan Shepherd Prize for Nature Writing and later that year started The Nature Library, a travelling library and reading space. Her photo series The Beach Today will be published by Guillemot Press in 2021.
