Lisa Woollett

Lisa is author and photographer of the
award-winning books Sea Journal
(2016) and Sea and Shore Cornwall:
common and curious findings (2013).
Both bring together her wanderings
along Britain’s shores with stories of
their natural history, geology and
evolution — from ancient myth to
current science.

She grew up by the sea on the Isle of
Sheppey, at the mouth of the Thames.
After a degree in psychology she
studied documentary photography and
then worked as a freelance
photographer for 12 years. She has
lived near Polperro since 2004 — in a
house shared with buckets and boxes
of beach finds — and is currently
working on a new book.
