Wayne Fogden is a Melbourne based artist making project-based photographic work. Aesthetically his photographs triumph space and scale, with compositions that consider what information is excluded from the frame as carefully as what is included.
A minimalist at heart, he uses just one camera and a single lens to make stunning large-scale images using whatever light is available, and adhering to the great photographer, Ansel Adams’ line, “A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”
His ongoing project, “Farmland” includes landscapes framing the country as a place of open spaces, isolation and nostalgia. The long-term documentation of Italian interiors treats the most iconic, beautifully extravagant palazzi and lesser-known, private villas with equal gravitas.
Fogden originally began a commercial photography career in Sydney. He specialized in portraiture, fashion and travel having been commissioned by the likes of American Express, The Australian Financial Review, AMP, FHM, Inside Sport and Bonds.
