Phillipa Klaiber is a long-form documentary photographer. The central themes of her practice are the anthropology of landscape, memory, and the materiality and topography of land.

Her most recent work, Vorest, is a meditation on the changing landscape of the Forest of Dean. It is an exploration of the connection between culture and nature in this landscape. 

In 2020, Phillipa completed an MA in Photography at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol).
