Kurt Sorensen

Arty Act: Photography

Artist Kurt Sorensen invites you to create a photographic image inspired by your favourite book, poem, movie, song, or something that is close to your heart or that you are inspired by. The challenge is to make a cohesive series of works that tell a story using only your camera, the landscape and your imagination.

 Instructions 

Get to Know Kurt Sorensen

Combining history and anthropology Sorensen’s photographic practice echoes Australia’s colonial past, invoking antagonistic encounters between early European settlers and the Australian landscape. He connects with this subject matter through in-camera and darkroom processes that allude to the precarious and uneasy relationship of colonial Europeans with the antipodean environment. Sorensen’s photographs have been included in several nationally recognised prizes (including Hazelhurst Art on Paper) and have been shown extensively both in Australia and internationally. His work is held in several public and private collections here and overseas.
