Selected as one of the ‘10 outstanding young photographers from around the world who look certain to shape the medium in years to come.’ – Art Review, Faces of the Future, October 2004.
'a new fusion of art and science.' – Matthew Collings
Winner of a Jerwood Photography Award in 2003, Naglaa Walker established herself as one of the most exciting young artists to emerge in recent years in the UK. Since 2000 her work has been seen in more than 25 exhibitions in the UK, Europe and the United States. Before taking an MA Fine Art Photography at the Royal College of Art, Naglaa Walker trained as a scientist, and worked briefly as a Physics researcher. She draws on this background, using diptyches which juxtapose blackboard images of chalked equations with carefully staged photographic images, enabling the viewer to make connections between the abstraction of physical laws and the reality of experience.
John Gribbin is the award-winning author of many popular science books and probably the most well known UK writer and broadcaster on the subject. He lucidly illustrates how science uses imagery from everyday life as metaphors to communicate complex ideas in an understandable way. Sacha Craddock, leading art critic, writer and curator, provides a context within which to consider and evaluate Walker’s work.
