In today's highly visual society, one has to ask, what exactly makes for a real woman? With the help of advertising and mass media influenced thought, more often than not women are judged and categorised by society's perception of beauty, fashion sensibility, sexuality and sexual preference, career success, maturity, self worth and past stereotyped expectations. In this exhibition I present these varied and debatable aspects for you to reflect on. Real women presented as unreal women. What makes a real woman? What should we all believe?
I have been interested in photography since my grandfather first handed me an SX70 Polaroid camera in my early teens. Since then, and after the completion of my Visual Arts Certificate and Advanced Diploma in Advertising/Graphic Design I have continued to explore photography as a profession, a passion and for artistic creativity. With subjects ranging from editorial portraiture to fetish fashion I've been on a visual meander through many different subjects for over 15 years. Using knowledge gained through experimentation and traditional design principles, as a practicing graphic designer in Adelaide, South Australia, I aim to capture the best of what can be seen through my viewfinder. I have exhibited my photographic work both locally and internationally and will continue to be on the look out for new and exciting prospects around every corner.
