Kate Bernauer Photography


The photography of Brisbane-based artist Kate Bernauer contains a narrative and that's no accident. She constructs her pictures with theatrical lighting and props in specific locations to construct a story. For example, the intention of her Sydney exhibition, "I’ll Be Home For Dinner," is to "address the contradictions and absurdities of everyday life." Ideas for her pictures come from dreams, along with absurd true stories. The effort and thought behind each photograph is obvious and makes for compelling viewing.
