Renee Stamatova

I am a Melbourne based artist working in both digital and analogue photographic techniques.

My work addresses identity, memory and time, often employing practices of camouflage, masquerade and documentation as a connection between artist and audience. Though I have many, my first love is Portraiture, and the hint of private and public psychology that it offers.

I was selected Finalist for the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2016, and also Semi-Finalist for the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize 2015.

I recently spent a month as an artist-in-residence in The Balkans, and a short time after that, road-tripping through villages, tracing my family roots with my sister - an experience that went above and beyond what I had imagined it might! Feel free to take a peek at some of the wonderful people I connected with and some of the work I made

Over the past 3 years, I have facilitated photographic workshops and projects with young people aged 12-22, through the City of Yarra Youth Services. I have developed a great affection for this work, it's challenges and rewards alike. If you would like to book me for a workshop with your school or community centre, please contact me on the details listed.

In addition to my arts practice, I also work as a freelance photographer shooting weddings, people and places. Here is my Instagram featuring some of that work

Feel free to contact me if you would like any of my services, or think we could make some magic together!
