Keira Hudson is a Melbourne-based artist whose practice treads a fine balance between the beautiful and the disturbing. She studied printmaking at RMIT University before discovering the magic of wet plate photography. She is fascinated by the visceral, and her work is a jumble of mystery, sexuality, romanticism and melancholy. As well as wet plate, she also uses film photography, wax, paint, thread, and polaroids in her practice. This is her way of pushing the boundaries of photography and finding new material combinations. She has been exhibiting for over 10 years, and her works are included in national and international collections.
