Style Description:

Theresa Segal employs a classical approach in her timeless images of landscapes, architectural subjects and light studies. They are deliberately structured and visually expressive yet always straightforward and unaffected, encouraging the viewer to experience a meditative stillness. Her love of the process is evident in her elegant black & white prints which are carefully crafted using a number of subtle printing techniques.
