Garlinda Birkbeck

Garlinda Birkbeck

Garlinda has a passion for the natural environment and in particular large scale desolate landscapes which has drawn her to visit and photograph Antarctica, South Africa, Iceland and most recently Patagonia and Atacama.

When Garlinda visited Antarctica in January 2012, fellow passenger and writer Anthony Horowitz wrote …

While I was trying to capture the dazzling but pitiless nature of this last great wilderness for a novel, Oblivion, Garlinda Birkbeck was doing the same for this exhibition. I think her work is extraordinary. She manages to capture the very essence of Antarctica as I experienced it, and yet makes it her own. A tiny bird snatched out of snowstorm, a crab eater seal clinging for life on a diminishing square of ice. …she photographs life where there should be none and almost effortlessly recreates the eternal drama. Once again, I am in awe.

Recent exhibitions have included:

A solo show of photographs taken in West Bengal at Indira Pasricha Contemporary Arts, London in 2014

A solo show of photographs taken in Antarctica at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, London in 2013

A mixed artist show,”Cabinet of Curiosity”, at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, New York in 2012

Printed in limited editions, all her photographs are available to buy framed or unframed and they can be ordered at smaller or larger dimensions.
