Georgina Evershed (b.1983, Sydney) works primarily with 35mm photography. Her work explores the natural landscape to create stories about her perception of the world and the people she encounters.
Raw documentary style alongside an experimental approach to layering, collage, multiple exposures and improvised performance seeks to destabilise two dimensional image vision, which is further explored in her time based pieces.
"I am interested in our blindness in the world… using the camera as a third eye, which holds the mysterious power to reveal over time, things that cannot be perceived in the present instant. The mistakes, the chance happenings that occur in the process of capturing and post production are important to an approach akin to surrealist automatism. In this sense I am attempting to articulate something that is not fully conscious, that has room to express narratives encapsulating realities which cannot be perceived with the naked eye but which might reveal themselves on reflection of the work" - G.E, 2016
