About the Artist:

Ash McFarlane is primarily a self-taught Australian contemporary photographer, with an avid interest in abstract photography, people and landscapes. She recently completed intensive studies in photography at the New York Film Academy and is a graduate in business and graphic design. Starting out using black and white film and a Kodak camera, Ash then moved on to a Nikon and entered the digital world of photography. However she still prefers film and older-style techniques of photography and photographers who inspire her - such as Henri Cartier-Bressonm. Ash’s photographic approach will always be to bring out something different in each picture such as uniqueness, dark and light emotion and the rawness of each particular subject.
