Landscape photography exhibition opens at Hammersmith Hospital
Works by awarding winning photographer Ellie Davies are now on display at Hammersmith Hospital.

A series of atmospheric woodland compositions showcasing the UK’s natural beauty are the latest addition to the charity’s Art in Focus exhibition series.

Ellie said: “My work explores the ways in which identity is formed by the landscapes we live and grow up in.”

“Making a variety of temporary and non-invasive interventions in the forest, my work places the viewer in the gap between reality and fantasy, creating spaces which encourage the viewer to re-evaluate the way in which their own relationship with the landscape is formed, the extent to which it is a product of cultural heritage or personal experience, and how this has been instrumental in their own identity.”

Born in 1976, Ellie lives in Dorset and works in the woods and forests of the UK. She grew up in the New Forest, in southern England, and uses the natural beauty of woodland to create scenes within it, often constructing temporary installations which she then photographs.

Ellie has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, as well as being the recipient of numerous prizes, including first place in the Fine Art Projects Category at the 2014 Kontinent Awards.

The exhibition is on display in the exhibition space in the main corridor until mid-July after which it will open at Charing Cross and St Mary’s Hospital.
