Visual Essay 07 by Saskia Wilson

For our latest visual essay, we invite Bondi-based photographer and educator Saskia Wilson to interpret our porcelain silhouettes. Wilson’s work is characterised by a reformed sense of balance, vibrancy, contemplation and authenticity.

“I felt it was important to reduce the colours to a simple palette as a means of abstraction and to emphasise the ceramic shapes.”

“My Grandma and Dad were both keen photographers, I was given my Grandma’s old SLR Yashica and fell in love after one roll of black and white film.”

“(for this visual essay) I was inspired by the simple still life photography of the 30’s and 40’s where the sets and props were kept very simple and the focus was more on light and form.”
