Naomi Jones

It takes me back to when I was a child when you’d send your films in to be developed. Getting them back would always be a surprise because you’d waited so long.

Naomi Jones is a fine art photographer who subjects her polaroid images to a process of creative destruction.

“Polaroid decay involves submerging the image in chemicals that eventually seep in and start to dissolve the dyes, stretching the image itself and altering the colours.”

Vesna Pavlovic | fine art photography | personal work journal

Vesna Pavlovic

“Complexity of representation remains a challenge when working with this material.”

Pavlović’s fine art photographs examine the relationship between memory in contemporary culture and the technologies of photographic image production.

Her work has focused on historical archives from her earliest photographs in Belgrade to her current work with the Roberson Project on Slavery, Race and Reconciliation.

Olga Karlovac

I like using a slower shutter and I always shoot a lot in motion while I’m walking or while driving so it was natural to do this type of photography.

Olga Karlovac is a Croatian photographer based in Zagreb. Originally an economist, she turned to photography as a creative outlet when she became disillusioned with her professional working life.

She has a strong personal photographic style that’s quickly captured the attention of the photographic community, resulting in exhibitions around Europe, and a trilogy of photobooks.

A Map Without Words began as an investigation into the connection that I feel to the landscape of home, in an effort to understand its effect on me.
