Leanne McPhee is an Australian art photographer working with alternative photographic processes to investigate identity in living and still life forms.
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. The ways we interact with and construct space, purposefully or subconsciously, to reflect who we are and how we live is a common theme in her work.
Working with large format, analogue and toy cameras, Leanne prefers the qualities of film, particularly for contact printing. To convey her photographic intent and enhance the visual language of her images, Leanne uses a number of 19th century and alternative photographic techniques.
Along with completing a Diploma of Photo Imaging at the Centre for Creative Photography, Leanne also holds a Master of Arts Degree (Criminology) and continues self-directed learning by attending photographic master classes and workshops. She regularly exhibits and has work in public and private collections in Australia and the United State of America. Recent awards include the Dr Mike Ware (UK) Award for her image 'Blushing Drape'.
