Tristan Poyser Lecturer, Photography

Tristan Poyser

I am a lecturer in Photography at the School of Digital Arts (SODA). My practice led research explores landscape theory, place and identity through social documentary and participatory photography. My work is influenced by an early academic background in Ecology and Biological Photography and my own exploration into biophilia, neurodiversity and wellbeing.

The result is a mindful approach to making work using analogue techniques and digital stitching to slow down my process promoting a deeper engagement with my subject. My work has exhibits nationally and internationally, with pieces held in the Historic England Archive. 

Recent works include:  

Bradley Brook 

Masked: A Portrait of Amazon 

The Invisible In-between: An Englishman’s Search for the Irish Border

My research is also informed by 20 years of commercial practice spanning industrial commissions through to architecture and advertising, and more recently includes developing new techniques for experiential content creation.

Both my research and commercial practices feed into my teaching across the degree programme, including units exploring Digital Media Technologies and Professional Practice.
