Connor Ovenden

A current South West TAFE student, I am passionate about photography as an art form, I explore the faces around me through the lens. I was given the honour of the 2016 Peter Lucas Memorial Art Prize and am looking forward to my first upcoming solo exhibition. I am continuing to find my feet in this diverse culture and community.

I aim to document the strength of characters around me, and how their lives are connected to mine, I find humanity fascinating, we have never been more connected; yet as a species we are the loneliest. I do this through portraiture, a process I find absolute joy in. Recently I’ve been looking at my heritage and early childhood as focuses for deeply personal works.

'Worn lines and weary faces pull me in more than anything else.'
