Auckland Festival of Photography
JEREMY BLINCOE

5 - 23 June 2018

Born and raised in Auckland, Melbourne-based Jeremy Blincoe creates dark and provocative technically pristine photographs that are set in stunning, natural landscapes. Due to their complexity, his images can take weeks or even months to plan, stage, shoot and edit.

His love of unspoiled nature fuels his passion for travel to remote locations and it’s obvious from his pictures that environmental degradation and the disconnection from nature are deeply held concerns. Blincoe would like to incite environmental awareness saying, “I make the things I do because I’m curious about making sense of different issues.” He like to “… alter the viewer’s perspective even the tiniest amount … or make somebody think about something new …” He reads a lot and makes work because his ideas evolve as he works as a process for understanding.

Blincoe has had fourteen solo exhibitions and won a number of prestigious prizes – including the 2017 Brisbane Art Prize with its $10,000 purse, for Simba, his beautiful moonlit portrait of an Indigenous teenager.

He cites New Zealand portrait painters C.F. Goldie and Gottfried Lindauer as artists whose work has inspired this recent series of Indigenous portraits.
