If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Shimmer Photography Biennal 2014: Jacqui Dean « Previous | |Next »
August 28, 2014

The Shimmer Photography Festival in Adelaide is slowly growing from its modest roots as a local festival into a Biennale that helps to raise the profile of photographers and photography in Australia.

One of the photographic artists at the Arts Centre Port Noarlunga is Jacqui Dean, who is exhibiting Translucence that has been previously shown in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

This is still life of Australian flowers--native and introduced---that reduces the flowers to their essential, sculptural shapes:

Dean uses using x-ray and digital imaging to highlight the flowers interior structures. She worked with a radiographer. What you see on a screen from an x-ray isn’t interpreted in the same way ias a digital image in Photoshop.

X-Rays reveal everything that lies beneath what our eyes can see; a negative tonal arena in which their inquisitive, diagnostic electrons reign supreme, effortlessly revealing both order and chaos in our biology. These rays also allow us to see the most intimate structures of, in Dean’s case, her chosen Muse – flowers
