Rachael Talibart

Rachael is a professional seascape and coastal photographer. Rachael is represented by galleries in Europe and the USA, her work is frequently exhibited, and her limited-edition prints are collected internationally. She is the author of three monographs.

Rachael grew up on the south coast of England and much of Rachael’s early childhood was spent at sea. Her first career, however, was as a solicitor in the City of London. During the City years, her friends and colleagues were used to seeing her return from trips with bags full of exposed film; the developing sometimes cost more than the trip! In 2008, she converted to digital, and she says that is when the obsession really set in. In 2000, Rachael left her City career and she now works full-time on her photography.

Rachael’s nautical childhood left her with a life-long love for the ocean and the coast it carves. For Rachael, nothing beats a day on an empty shore, and this is reflected in her work. Often choosing to work in the tradition of the ‘Sublime’, Rachael is drawn to the coast in the wildest weather, but she also loves to capture quieter moods, often focusing on the tiniest of details at the tideline. She admits that she is both frightened and fascinated by the sea. Her Sirens series embodies hidden figures that seem to emerge from the water. Sirens has won a series of international awards and featured in national and international publications
