About the Work
"Initially, when given the task of picking my favourite pieces from the collection I chose all six from this series by photographer George Krause. This was the first photo to catch my attention. I am drawn to the composition, the bright blown out background, and the contours described by the contrasting shadows. The subject is Raewyne Johnson, the Sarjeant Gallery’s Events Co-ordinator who told tells me that all the photos in this series were taken in the stairwell of Tylee Cottage where Krause was artist-in-residence and that George’s focus here was mainly on her collar bones. What attracts me to this portrait and the series, is the idea of artists interacting with other artists. Raewyne is the subject here, she is an artist and is actively involved in the arts community."
