British photographer Susannah Baker-Smith grew up in Wales and Amsterdam. After studying English Literature at Cambridge she went on to travel and work in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. She studied at the Institute of Contemporary Photography (ICP) in New York and after graduating embarked upon a series of independent projects examining memory, focusing on the way that our experience of the new is affected by memories of the past. 

The series ‘Botanic’ is also about confinement in a sense, nature confined to a designated space, the park – boundaries between natural and unnatural are blurred – a ‘pretend’ landscape, it’s wildness is filtered out but implicit.
