About the Maker:
James Tylor's artistic practice specialises in experimental and historical photographic processes. He uses a hybrid of analogue and digital photographic techniques to create contemporary artworks that reference Australian society and history. The processes he employs are the physical manipulation of digital photographic printing, such as the manual hand-‐colouring of digital prints or the application of physical interventions to the surfaces of digital prints. James also uses the historical19th century photographic process of the Becquerel Daguerreotype with the aid of modern technology to create new and contemporary Daguerreotypes. Photography was historically used to document Aboriginal culture and the European colonisation of Australia. James is interested in these unique photographic processes to re-‐contextualise the representation of Australian society and history.
Available for shipment or collection from 7 July 2022.
