Milo Newman is an artist and researcher who works with photography, sound recordings and written texts. Through these media he translates landscapes, cultural histories and concepts of place into artworks. There are two main strands to this practice: archive-based projects that critically interrogate historical socio-cultural landscape interactions to explore how we have come to inhabit the ‘Anthropocene’; and multi-disciplinary, phenomenological engagements with specific places that ask now we are here, how does it feel to be so. He produces exhibitions, installations, and artist’s books.
He studied Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales, before completing an MA in Photography and the Land at the University of Plymouth, and an MA in Environmental Humanities at Bath Spa University. He is currently undertaking an AHRC funded PhD at the University of Bristol, where he is exploring ways of articulating the emotional geographies of extinction.
