I N V I S I B L E features the work of Melbourne-based humanitarian photographer, Liz-Loh Taylor. Through the use of black and white, Liz’s pictures take us on a documentary journey through remote locations across African, Pakistan and Peru.
Anonymity, observation and capturing natural moments 'up-close' are the key signatures of Liz’s photography.
“I love photographing people, up close, very close, in their space, their world."
"Shooting in black and white enables me to capture the true essence of the moment, without distraction. I am able to focus on the going-ons at the time, focus on my composition, focus on capturing that little snippet of life.”
At a complimentary artist reception and talk at Leica Store Sydney guests enjoyed the opening night of the 'Liz Loh-Taylor: I N V I S I B L E on 7 September 2018
For the past years, Liz Loh-Taylor has worked with numerous developing communities and disadvantaged children in various parts of the world, including Africa, Mexico and India amongst others. This has inspired her to leave a finance career to share the stories of those encountered, to raise awareness of important issues around us and promote understanding and change. Liz has pursued projects involving daily life, human interest, poverty, social issues, displacement and economic development. Liz is attracted to people and their way of life, and to situations where the subject matter needs to be enlivened and understood. Photography is a means by which she shares the stories of people and communities, of change, of dignity amongst poverty, of pride amongst destitution, of life!
