Pamela Raith Biography

Pamela Raith’s rich, saturated photographs are full of intrigue and an underlying unease, reminiscent as they are of forest crime scenes and the lure of the fairytale. Her practice is a kind of visual mythology, and explores the strangeness that lurks beneath the surface of a familiar place and the memories it triggers.

In her Fantasia series Raith explores the creation of contemplative space: photographs as a site of reflection on the landscape and the undisclosed stories and ideas. Much of the work is set in woodlands and forests; a world of ominous enchantment as depicted in fairytale narratives, where the forest boundaries divide beauty from danger.

Raith received a first class honours degree from Northumbria University in 2009, and since graduating has exhibited in Newcastle, London and Kagawa, Japan.
