You’ve probably gathered by now my name is Tiffany and I take photographs. I live by the sea in Melbourne, Australia with two cats and a dog, an ex-racing greyhound to be precise. You’ll meet them in my photos fairly regularly so I won’t bore you about them here. Suffice to say I love them more than life.

So, anyway, what do I photograph and why? Well, I photograph pretty much anything that catches my eye, anything I find visually appealing. This means my subject matter is pretty eclectic but I think the common theme is beauty. Not always the kind of obvious beauty of, for example, flowers, although there is that too, but often the kind of hidden, sometimes impermanent beauty such as might otherwise not be noticed. Sometimes I find it in what others might even call ugly, things like graffitti or crumbling walls or even rubbish! There are aesthetically pleasing textures, angles, colours, shapes and patterns everywhere just waiting to be seen. Thankfully, I often do.

I say thankfully because, in my book, beauty nourishes the soul, it is necessary for life. Looking at beautiful art makes me happy. It’s as simple as that. I really hope you find something here among my photos that makes you happy to look at.

“The love of beauty involves a yearning which is not – and perhaps cannot be – fulfilled. For at the core of beauty is a conception of how we would like life to be and yet we know that life cannot be that way. The pleasure of beauty, therefore, draws upon dissatisfaction. If we did not find life difficult, beauty would not have the appeal it does.” John Armstrong, The Secret Power of Beauty: Why Happiness is in the Eye of the Beholder (Allen Lane, 2004, P.85)

Ballarat International Foto Biennale

Having attended the Biennale two years ago and seen so much fabulous work I was determined to be in it this time. So I would love any of you who were planning to head up there to drop by my show at Mason’s Cafe & Foodstore at 32 Drummond St North, Ballarat (opposite the hospital). / I’ll be there on the weekends so come and say hello. / Cheers, / Tiffany.

For any italophiles in the Hobson's Bay area

Below is some info about a festival in Newport, (Melbourne, Australia) for anyone interested in what sounds like should be a fun day.
