Photographer Spotlight: Louise Beer

Louise uses installation, moving image, photography and sound to explore humanity's evolving understanding of Earth’s environments and the cosmos. Louise creates objects and experiences that reflect the incomprehensible nature of reality, from the ocean floor to the night sky in order to highlight humanity’s infancy of understanding of the cosmos and that we remain in a time where even the implausible is possible.


Louise is a co-director of Lumen, super/collider, Pale Blue Dot Collective and Print Science. Louise has exhibited extensively across the UK and in Russia, Israel, the USA, China, Germany and Italy. Louise has collaborated with and curated events and workshops at organisations such as the Science Museum, Bompas and Parr, Greenman Festival, British Science Association, Second Home, the Ace Hotel, Floating Cinema, The Collective, Tate Britain, SALT Festival Norway, Soho House Group, Nablus Festival Israel, Blue Dot Festival, Young and Serious and Vivid Projects. In 2019, Louise was the lead artist on a super/collider x Sail Britain sailing residency which aims to promote a wider understanding of ocean plastic. Within her collectives, Louise has curated over 50 exhibitions and 60 events with overarching focus on astronomy and/or ecology. Louise is currently on the London Creative Network at Space Studios and a member of the Arts Territory Exchange. In September 2019 Louise joined the Somewhere Nowhere Residency at the Lake District, on a specially funded place by Dark Skies Cumbria. Louise was awarded the BigCi Environmental Art Award in 2020 which includes a month long residency in the Blue Mountains of Australia, in collaboration with John Hooper.
