I am a Melbourne-based photographer specializing in portraiture and landscape photography. I love travelling and coming across unexpected subjects: be it landscapes, people, food, buildings or objects. My last body of work explored the weird and wonderful otherworldly environments of Scandinavia. Hopefully India is next.
I’m an art and photography student from England and my work mainly focuses on the ideas surrounding youthfulness and growing up. Through my photography, I look to express my feelings in a unique way. Me & my friends are all at a time in our lives when one decision will change our lives forever; whether its going to uni, getting a job etc. This is an incredibly daunting prospect, but exciting at the same time.
I came across Nigel Cox’s work at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. I was blown away by his remarkable, detailed figures and his minimal compositions. His paintings are subtly powerful and filled with optimism and confidence. Cox is based in London, UK and works in his studio near Camberwell.
I first saw Mary Jane’s work while playing tourist in London, at the BP Awards show at the National Portrait Gallery. I was completely floored by her incredible, detailed rendering. Her latest series, The Beauty of the Hours, is a graceful, moody and captivating collection of work. She currently works from her studio in Brighton’s North Laine, after going for her morning walk on the beach.
Philippine born, Chicago resident, Miriam Fanger is addicted to coffee, and capturing moments that don’t exist with the reality of passing time.
