Kelly Marie Slater
This River: Inception
Kelly moved to Northwest Tasmania in 2009, working as professional photographer one way and another since that time. When her children headed off on their education and life adventures, Kelly embraced the opportunity to take her photographic practice in new directions. Exploring concepts and ideas as a lens-based artist, making images of the environment and the sense of place she experiences while immersed in the topography of Tasmania.
Photography is a passion and compulsion that has driven her since adolescence, growing up in New Zealand. Using film cameras and analogue printing techniques as a teenager gave her a strong foundation in the capture of light, moving to digital as soon as DSLR’s and digital editing became affordable. Kelly is now actively developing new skills, embracing the capacity of modern cameras to capture moving images.
