artist statement

For Stephanie, photography is a passion that encompasses two key dimensions, a medium for expression and a matter of record to be experienced by others. She is drawn to, and has documented cultures such as Tibet, Ghana, India, Cambodia, Nepal, Myanmar and the remote areas of Australia in order to capture both the unique and the universal.

Stephanie is an Australian who currently resides in Los Angeles. For the past few years, she has been pursuing her ongoing Australian Aboriginal project documenting two remote communities – Palm Island situated off the coast of far north Queensland and Yiyili, located in the Kimberly region at the top of Western Australia.  Through her images, it is Stephanie’s desire to raise awareness of the Aboriginal people and their culture in their quest for recognition, respect and reconciliation.

Stephanie's image "Meditation" was voted as "Best of Show" in WIPI's virtual * visual online photo exhibition.
