"It is through living that we discover ourselves, at the same time as we discover the world around us" - Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1952

Dawne Fahey was born in Melbourne and lives in Sydney. Dawne is a practising visual artist, and a part time PhD student at Western Sydney University - School of Humanities and Communication Arts. The focus of her research is on the use of historical photographic processes and practice and auto-ethnography as a means for visualising empathy in the photographed landscape.

Dawne's work highlights an intense curiosity between self and other, in an exploration of the intersection between cultural immersion, light, identity, landscape, personal meanings, time and sensibility. Dawne seeks to find emotional depth in ordinary events and everyday objects, and the extraordinary in the landscape that surrounds her. In doing so, Dawne's photographs make sense of her felt experience of the world.
