Jemma Ridyard is a photographer who uses traditional photographic processes to explore the landscape and translate it into unique pieces of work. Through using processes such as wet plate collodion and bromoil printing, every image is individual and cannot be replicated. In this digital age, she enjoys using 19th century photographic processes to express her relationship with the landscape in England, with particular focus on Dartmoor National Park in Devon. The time consuming process of wet plate collodion gives Jemma more time to consider the landscape around her, and the finished result is a physical photographic artefact which she finds to be increasingly important in a time when millions of photographs are taken and forgotten about every week.
