Leanne McPhee is an award winning Australian fine art photographer known for her investigations into identity in living and still forms. She works exclusively with film and uses mainly alternative photographic processes from the 19th century.
Leanne’s work explores how the character inherent in different forms can be altered or supported by interactions with people, objects and the built and natural environments.
Working with large format, analogue and toy cameras, Leanne prefers the qualities of film, particularly for contact printing. She has demonstrated expertise in a variety of specialist alternative processes, especially chrysotype (gold) printing, and maintains ongoing practice to extend her knowledge and skills into new (and many old) area of photographic art.
She is a regular contributor to National and International symposia, hands-on workshops and has published both technical and creative works. Her work is held in both public and private collections in Australia and the US.
Leanne holds a Diploma of Photo Imaging from the Centre for Creative Photography and a Master of Arts Degree from the Flinders University of South Australia.
