Michelle Richards is a Brisbane photographer. Michelle's artwork explores the transitions between old and new, analogue and digital, foreground and background, and between generations.
Michelle majored in film production in her undergraduate degree and saw the transition from analogue cameras and editing equipment to digital. It altered her perceptions of image-making and she enjoys reflecting on that transitional period when both technologies were used.
After studying the moving image, she became increasingly drawn to still images and began creating works that had the appearance of film stills. This subject area is where much of her arts photography practice originated. Michelle enjoys the fact that her current artwork production continues to combine analogue equipment and materials with digital technologies.
