ABOUT ALANA + KARLY POTTS
Alana and Karly are analogue and digital photographers. Growing up in regional NSW their work is a reflection of their surroundings of their youth – organic, and honest in capturing a natural imagery and those who wander through. The sisters are experimental in process and practice. Self-taught and freelance, they work with a variety of photographic mediums. They explore manual formats including 35mm film photography, engaged by the grainy and raw aesthetic and method, which they find complimentary to their photographic style – having an eye and an appreciation of the Australian landscape and how this translates into people, art and culture.
The girls learnt their way around the manual settings of a film camera before picking up a DSLR which developed a greater respect and understanding for film and a natural and learned transition into digital photography. They collaborated in creating ‘The Wildfolk Collective’ and curated a series of 35mm zines featuring different places and scapes. The most recent series focused on the coastal climates and the hills and hinterland from a high summer at home which later became a solo exhibition, ‘Salty’ at This Must Be The Place in 2016. Their portfolio includes a range of styles and mediums – portrait photography – landscape photography – editorial photography – photojournalism – music photography – wedding and event photography and creative direction. Their clients include Analogue.Gallery, Creative Mornings Brisbane, National Young Writers Festival, and a series of local publications, artists and events, dappling in mixed media and visual art as complimentary to their visual body of work.
