Ann Shelton is recognized as one of New Zealand’s leading photographic artists. Her most recent work engages with plant narratives and histories, in particular the intersection of these histories with human knowledge systems. Shelton is interested in how the perceived power play between plants and humans can be questioned, redefined and modified through questions that urgently come into play as we move deeper into the era of the anthropocene.
