Claire Letitia Reynolds
"You are the hero in my stories, you are the reason I create.
I'm a visual artist using the camera to tell my stories, driven by a passion to visually engage with the world around me, to capture and create what inspires me". clr
I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
Passionate as an image maker, Claire works commercially as a photographer for advertising and fashion, in addition to community minded projects and fine art.
Claire published her first photography book, Pure and Dirty in 2012 and has had limited edition books published in 2014/5 through the project 2HrsNorth.
Having had several major exhibitions and international representation by Gallery 555, Boston, MA, USA, Claire has also exhibited a solo photographic installation that received widespread industry acclaim on Cockatoo Island, Sydney in 2013.
Now living on The Sunshine Coast with her partner and their son, Claires most recent exhibition "Changing Perceptions On Homelessness" August-September 2020, and Febuary 2021, is a powerful pictorial story on homelessness on the Sunshine Coast, and received national press coverage for its authenticity and engaging portraiture.
