My name is Avalon and I take photographs.
Growing up I was exposed to the camera from a young age through my dad’s interest and practice in photography. Naturally, I developed a connection to this mode of image making and have been using photographs as a means to visually capture and archive my life’s experiences. My investment in my photographic practice has been shaped by my travels and split time between rural living and city life. Throughout these states of transition, I have found that photography has allowed me to keep a visual record of my experience with in these areas.
When I photograph I concentrate on capturing landscape and location. My aim is for the viewer of my photographs to be able to engage with these spaces in a prolonged manner. I think this deeper looking that the photograph is able to allow for is important as society leaves little time for it in our daily lives and routines.
