About Marie-Louise 

Marie-Louise Garratt is the Daughter of renowned railway photographer Colin Garratt. Consequently from an early age Marie-Louise was exposed to the art of photography, growing up in a Georgian farm house located alongside the Grand Union Canal deep in the soft Leicestershire countryside. From this idyllic base her father made his worldwide photographic expeditions and by the time she was 10 Marie-Louise had travelled to India, China, Eritrea,Alaska, Portugal and Ireland.  Marie-Louise, now a graduate from Plymouth University, has a passion for animal welfare and conservation, creating projects around these issues with the intention of informing audiences on these complex subjects and ensuring that divergent views are aired and debated.
