Joachim Froese is an Australian contemporary art photographer who lives and works in Brisbane and Berlin. Born in Montreal/Canada, he grew up in Germany and migrated to Australia in 1991.
He is best known for his highly constructed still life photography, which investigates cross-overs with art history, portraiture and nature photography.
Froese has exhibited widely across Australia, Europe, Asia and North America. His work is included in numerous public collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art and has been featured in international art publications.
Froese has taught photography as a casual lecturer at universities in Australia and Germany for more than 10 years and was invited to give guest lectures at major universities and art institutions in Australia, Asia and Europe.
Joachim Froese presents us with zen-like meditations and dream-like imagery in his series of triptychs.
