Jacqui Dean is a talented Sydney based architectural, corporate and fine-art photographer known for her rigorous sense of composition and peerless black and white print-making skills. Nature is a subject close to her heart.
In Translucence, Jacqui Dean reveals Australia’s flora, native and introduced, in radically new ways. Dean’s vision reduces flowers to their essential, sculptural shapes, and translates them into exquisite black and white prints. Calla lilies are seen as never before – with their curved flowers resembling the shape and texture of crystal chalices. Dean’s images of roses, through scanning and digital magic, reveal interlaced petals adopting textures that mimic a bridal veil.
