Louis Haugh is a visual artist and museum photographer based in Dublin. His practice is situated at the intersection of art and ecology, and his long term research looks at the history and provenance of non-native conifer trees and commercial forestry in Ireland. Specifically, Haugh's research looks at Ireland’s colonial history as a key factor in the introduction of the alien tree species Picea Sitchensis (Sitka Spruce). Haugh's work is deeply guided by his lifelong interest in history, micro-histories and archives, as well as his work as a free lance museum photographer over the past ten years.
