Tessa Traeger(1938-), Photographer
Artist of 50 portraits
Tessa Traeger is one of the outstanding still life photographers of her generation, and since 1978 has exhibited regularly in Paris, London, Hamburg and New York. She is especially known for her photographs taken on large format cameras, many of which were published during her long association with British Vogue. Following a commission from the National Portrait Gallery to photograph important British horticulturalists for its collection, in 2001 Traeger and her husband the designer Patrick Kinmonth photographed over fifty sitters working in the field, including gardeners, garden history writers, plant finders, garden designers and artists who are shaping new attitudes to plants and gardens.
