The artistic practice of photographer and filmmaker Lindsay Seers goes beyond simple storytelling to become a network in which conceptual investigation, a desire for photography to act as evidence, historical and personal contexts, and the camera itself merge. Her work represents the creative process in action; the act of observation influences the outcome of the events themselves.
