Dawn Collins is a landscape photographer; the three-year period at university has allowed her to explore photography in all its forms, but Dawn has continually returned to the landscape genre influenced by John Davies, Paul Seawright and Jem Southam amongst many others.
Dawn is currently working on a project that examines the vulnerability of the British coastline, the edges of our island where the land meets the sea. These landscape photographs depict the homes of others, which act as a point of reference for those who seek to remember the shape of our coastline. Dawn has been using ordinance survey maps and the photographic archives to bring poignancy and depth to her work. In the past, Dawn has explored the hidden landscape of landfill sites and returned to her family home to look at the impact of sea defences at the coastal town of Lyme Regis.
Dawn patiently observes the changes in the current environmental situation in the news media and photojournalism and creates an informative personal reflection through landscape photography. Dawn has the objective to experience as many opportunities as possible with a desire to work alongside those who share similar interest in photography’s ability to record change, whether environmental, personal or political.
