Melbourne based photographer and film-maker, Hillier is constantly capturing the events, lives and colours around him. Wether it is a video DSLR or some broken down 35mm, he is interested in the manner of how light is captured, and how in turn it is represented. Using out of date film and cross processing, mixing lens filters and shooting thru foreign objects, pushing how colour can be manipulated, in camera, and then be displayed. His work is both honest and fictitious. Either filming the rituals of Indigenous Australian dancing, or how the light of the desert looks thru a window.
Working within documentary films and vernacular photography, he has exhibited in New York, Vancouver and around Australia, contributing to many magazines worldwide, as well as more recently working on commercial projects with the World Bank and comedian Arj Barker, as well as the video clips for Super Wild Horses, Dick Diver and for the Indigenous Hip Hop Project.
