Australian photographer Tamara Dean's images explore themes of ritual, intimacy and decay set within the contemporary Australian landscape.
Like many photographers, Dean started her photographic journey documenting personal lifestyle and relationships, but her thorough and thoughtful approach and beautifully etherial aesthetic allowed her images to stand out from what is a heavily saturated and often empty genre of photography. Her contemporary documentary work further explores subcultures and social rituals, aiming to illuminate the real lives and stories often overlooked by mainstream media.
Tamara's 2009 project 'Ritualisms' explores the disconnect from contemporary landscape and pace of life, and delves into the shared desire to understand our existence and our mortality.
