Dr. Conohar Scott is a lecturer in photographic theory and a practicing artist at the School of Film & Media, University of Lincoln. Dr. Scott’s research interests concern the representation of environmental despoliation in photography, and the application of art as a tool for environmental advocacy. Dr. Scott is currently writing a monograph for Bloomsbury Press on the subject of 'Photography & Environmental Activism',which is part of the forthcoming series 'Photography, Place, Environment' series edited by Liz Wells. As part of his artistic practice, Dr. Scott founded Environmental Resistance (environmentalresistance.org), which is an artist-led collective comprised of specialists in environmental science, photography, translation studies, anthropology and graphic design. The purpose of the collective is to raise awareness of industrial pollution and advocate, in collaboration with communities, NGOs and activist networks, for environmental remediation.
