Dawne Fahey was born in Melbourne and lives in Sydney. Dawne is a practising visual artist, and a part time PhD student at Western Sydney University – School of Humanities and Communication Arts. Her research focuses on the use of historical photographic processes and practice and auto-ethnography as a means to visualise empathy.

In her personal work, Dawne is particularly interested in creating fine art hand made prints, documentary photographs, urban and country landscapes, and fine art photography books. Dawne originally studied Black & White Photography a number of years ago before taking up mixed media arts and more recently has rekindled her love of hand made prints by studying alternative photographic printing processes in New York and Australia.

Dawne’s work highlights an intense curiosity between self and other, in an exploration of the intersection between cultural immersion, light, identity, landscape, personal meanings, time and sensability. Dawne seeks to find emotional depth in ordinary events and everyday objects, and the extraordinary in the landscape that surrounds her. In doing so, Dawne’s photographs make sense of her felt experience of the world.
