Georgia Sheales is a photographer originally from Melbourne, but has since moved to Berlin as she finds Europe to be more visually stimulating and inspiring than her home town. Her introduction to photography began when she was 13 years old, and her parents gave her their old Minolta SLR from the 80s. She grew up to dabble in digital photography, but eventually realised that there was nothing that felt quite the same as looking at a photo that was taken on film. In January 2016, she moved from Melbourne to Berlin, and has spent most of her time exploring new territories and getting to know her surroundings.
“As a shy person, I find solace in loneliness. My works reflect the outsider’s perspective I have on everyday life. There is a sort of disconnect within the images that I feel allows the viewer to ponder a moment that they may have missed in an otherwise busy and overwhelming world – a kind of moment between moments. I like to portray the world with a calming emptiness, as an attempted antidote to the anxiety one can experience in these turbulent times.”
