Lynette Zeeng

Lynette Zeeng has studied the limitations of these ‘alternative’ processes and how they may be modified to suit todays digital world, hence her wide spread of alternative photographic processes on display.
From: Melbourne, Australia.
Shows: Cyanotypes, Lumen prints, Mordancages, Oil prints, Polaroid Transfers and Tintypes.


Lynette Zeeng’s creative practice is based on her investigation into historical photographic processes that create a singular unrepeatable handcrafted image. Her research included studying the nuances of the many one-off processes such as Daguerreotype, Tintype, Cyanotype through to more modern techniques of Polaroid transfer and lift off plus Lumens and Mordançage. This included studying the limitations of these ‘alternative’ processes and how they may be modified to suit todays digital world. Lynette incorporates digital negatives, uv boxes and scanners into her work but most importantly she retains the idiosyncrasies and individual character obtained from the original process. Lynette teaches photography and photo media at Swinburne University, Melbourne Australia. She has won several awards, both in Australia and internationally for her work.

“These processes with their perfect imperfections are what makes photography exciting. No matter how thoroughly I plan my image I can never be totally sure of the outcome therefore with anticipation I embrace the unexpected result.”
