William Tanner

Photographer & Filmmaker

British woodlands

Hi, my name is William Tanner and I am from Suffolk, in the UK. I have been attracted to plants over last couple of years and I like to tell their stories. Plants are so different to everything in the animal kingdom, they move through time at a different pace than us, live to great ages and preform incredible feats of chemical engineering. I think there is always an interesting story to tell about plants.

My main influences are:

Sandra Bartocha, photographer
Suzanne Simard, scientist
Simon Kenny, painter
Audun Rikardsen, photographer
Emily Garthwaite, photographer

I use digital stills mostly but I also use alternative mediums such as cyanotypes. I want to develop a conservation story on British woodland and the people working within them, protecting them and those trying to give forests more space to grow.

Please keep up to date with my work on:
