Jane Morrison is a Melbourne-based artist working with photography. Over her many years of practice, Jane has developed her unique understanding and passion for landscape in her work. In this series, Jane demonstrates her appreciation of the landscape; notably its texture, beauty and sense of place. Jane has travelled to places where the landscape inspires her, capturing images from her favourite vantage point – helicopters. Many of Jane's landscapes are inaccessible and remain unseen but briefly captured through her lens from the heights of her helicopter journey. Her landscape is therefore often viewed from a distance, which highlights her understanding of the sense of place, without human interaction. Her works continue to present the essential enormity of our natural environment.
Commonwealth Games 2006
During the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne Jane worked for Helifilms Australia taking still photos of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Both nights were clear and the result were unprecedented photos. The MCG looked spectacular as the fireworks went off, creating such a fantastic atmosphere. The patterns on the field of play were so unusual and the photos absolutely unique.
Nine to Five
People at work provide a fascinating subject due to the myriad of activities across differing cultures.
Markets provide a landscape of colour, movement and textures and are a key way to experience different cultural atmospheres.
The environment plays an important part of Jane's photography. A love of landscapes and conservation is of critical interest to her work.
Night photography provides special challenges. Living and working in Docklands Victoria Australia means there are many and varied opportunities to capture fabulous night scenes.
Trees provide a multitude of colours, shapes sizes and ignite the imagination. Photographing trees is one category that interests jane in her photography.
Great art can affect how people view the world. Public Art is a way of expressing different concepts and views and sharing the artists intention to a broad audience.
