Our 2012 Judges
At World Photography Day, we are passionate about inspiring, encouraging and challenging our younger, upcoming photographers. To fill our judging panel for 2012, we approached a group of photographers from the Australian National University and Canberra Institute of Technology who are passionate about their art and invited them onboard.
We asked each of our Judges to write their own short biographies. We hope that though their bio, you get a small glimpse of their passion and personality.
Say hello to…
Chloe is a passionate (and slightly crazed) Visual Art Student from the ANU majoring in Photomedia. Her love for photography blossomed late in her high school years where she narrowly escaped a degree in science and pursued a future in all things film and photographic instead.
She likes to surround herself with old and pretty things which also inspires her love of film photography. She spends a vast amount of her time developing her own film and photographs in the darkrooms - she believes that the lack of sunlight in her life may result in her eventually resembling a vampire.
Her latest photography purchase is a beautiful Hasselblad that she cherishes as if it were her own child.
Jeremy is a practising photo media visual artist based in Canberra currently in the final semester of his Bachelor of Visual Arts (Hon) at the ANU.
He is interested in contemporary ideas and methods that evolve traditional processes. For Jeremy, his conceptual underpinning comes down to getting a reaction, any reaction, from the viewer. It doesn't matter whether it's a positive or negative reaction. Jeremy believes that too often, pieces of art are viewed without reaction by the viewer.
Jeremy's work has been in numerous exhibitions thoughout Australia and he will also be exhibiting as part of the Pingyao International Photography Festival in China this September.
Nick's passion for photography began at a young age and stemmed from his admiration the scenery around himself. This admiration of the environment led him to pursue his Bachelor of Photography at the Canberra Institute of Technology.
Since moving from Perth, Western Australia to Canberra on the East Coast, travelling has become a major part of his life. Nick's passion for travelling has been driven by his excitement for different environments and cultures.
After he finishes his studies, Nick has a goal to travel the world pursuing his passion of photographing the environment.
