Joey, 2014

by Elke Meitzel

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2015 Finalist

My work is largely inspired by real life events and I have a strong interest in the cinematic. The exploration of people, the subconscious and spaces feature frequently. This work is a highly constructed form of psychological mapping and is rooted somewhere in the space between reality and fiction. It forms part of a larger body of work exploring suburbia.
