ABOUT

Abi’s photography sits in the gentle moment between dreaming and awake, scenes of rocky terrains dazzling in shades of pink, portraits both revelatory and animated. Her work reveals yet holds tight it’s allure.

After graduating from Photography Studies College in Melbourne, she completed an internship with the late, truly great Mary Ellen Mark in NYC. She finds inspiration while travelling the world and most recently exploring her own country’s unique identity in land and people.

Portraiture and documentary photography are two of Abi’s great loves. In 2014, her series of up-and-coming artists featured in the National portrait gallery in Canberra. Her latest work Rough and Cut, taken in Coober Pedy in 2015, was displayed at Sydney's Parliament House, announced Landscape Winner at the Centre for Contemporary Photography in Melbourne, and published as the Heart of the Nation photograph in the Australian magazine.
