Mimicking the practice of Constantin Brancusi and Medardo Rosso who photographed their sculptures, Emma Hamilton’s photographs present her own view of their works through the camera lens. Taken in black and white film, the photographs harness light and shadow to create a dramatic alternative set of ‘documentation’. The images become works in their own right, revealing moments that we cannot see within the physical work.
The Sculptor’s Photograph was undertaken on a three-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, awarded by the Australia Council.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
This project is supported by the 2014 City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program.
