We are happy to announce that we have a guest photographer participate in our project this month.
Toby Smith is based in Cambridge and works internationally on photography projects concerning landscape, environment, industrial and science stories.
Toby graduated with a Masters in Contemporary Photography from London College of Communication in 2008. This was after spending time employed both in the British Army Infantry and 2 years working across Africa utilizing his bachelors degree in Environmental Science. His focus now lies on large-scale photography and research projects for editorial publication, exhibition, communication and advocacy. He is represented globally by Getty Images Reportage and the Artist in Residence at the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute.
In February 2016 Toby was commissioned by the Imagine Science Films to produce original photographic artwork for their exhibition ATMOSPHERES. Atmospheres is a sci-art exhibition held in conjunction with the Imagine Science Film Festival Abu Dhabi, the NYUAD Arts Center, and the NYUAD Art Gallery. Toby chose to spend 5 days exploring the UAE coastline focusing on the loss, destruction and modification of coastal habitats. He visited the mangroves in Umm Al Quwain too!
