About The Scholars

THE SCHOLARS

The Scholars is a series of portraits of young scholarship winners taken over the Australian summer of 2009-2010. Realised as tintypes a 19th Century photographic process this series is a record of a particular time and place, of future scientists, mathematicians, sociologists and artists thrown together by circumstance in the second decade of the 21st Century.

Photography is a child of science, it informs our way of seeing and being, revealing previously unknown, small truths that add to the World and lead our way through it.

The Scholars is a visual record of a moment along that journey.
