Born 1987, in the United Kingdom, Lives and works in London.

Teo Ormond-Skeaping is an Artist working with a combination of documentary photography, documentary film, narrative film, installation, interactive documentary and research in order to produce multifaceted projects that are  intended to reflect the complexities of todays world.  Since 2012 he has have been working on projects relating to Climate Change and the Anthropocene with artist collaborator Lena Dobrowolska (PL).

His ongoing work focuses on the relationship between climate change, development, environmental degradation, human rights and geopolitics through which he considers how documentary film and photography inherently reveal the presence of pervasive power relationships , power structures and the mechanism of othering within the political landscape of our globalized society. Through a study of the landscape, the portrait and the still life he considers the shifting cultural meaning of nature, how this is changed by the definition of the Anthropocene and how we may decolonize nature.

He has worked extensively in climate change stress zones producing work in China, Nepal, Bangladesh, Uganda and Laos PDR. Their work has been exhibited internationally including exhibitions at Krakow Photomonth (2016), Fotofestiwal (2014), Fotograf festival (2014), Mpm Gallery (2015) and Grey House Foundation (2016).

In June 2016 he and Lena Dobrowolska were awarder a Culture and Climate Change research residency supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, The University of Sheffield, The Open University and Ashden Trust.
