Louise Long

Louise Long’s work centres around site-based research, making, and re-telling, in relation to the natural and man-made environment. Exploring photography and alternative forms of image making, her work attempts to reflect both the materiality of a place and the less visible narratives beneath its surface. The handcrafted is interwoven with the archival, the psychological with the historical, and the philosophical with the geological and archaeological.

Cyanotype print on paper


Traces of another artistic process: cyanotype chemical reaction colliding with material happenstance. The potential of what is left abandoned, left untampered-with, left unsaid.
