Hannah Robinson // Documentary & Photographic Artist living on Awabakal Country (Newcastle), Australia.
There are worlds that exist outside language. There are lives that are lived on the borders and boundaries of what we know and see. I am a photographer using a camera to entangle myself in these moments; an image-maker hoping that my frame will hold a fragment of the energy found in something felt, something lived, & something loved.
Emerging Editorial Photographer of the Year by Australian Commercial & Media Photographer's Association // Trampoline 2010. Runner up in the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize, finalist The National Portrait Prize & The Olive Cotton Portrait Prize.
