This Virtual Highlight Tour will be delivered using Zoom.
While the 2022 National Photographic Portrait Prize visits Lilydale in VIC, catch Yarra Ranges Regional Museum curator Maddie Reece as they speak to finalists Ayman Kaake and Joey Chan about photography, portraits and their art practice.
Ayman Kaake (he/him) is an award-winning Lebanon-born Australian photo-media artist based in Melbourne who explores diasporic melancholy and the agony of exile through contemplative portraiture and sculptural, styled poses.
Joey Chan (her/she) is a portrait photographer based in Melbourne, who appreciates beauty in the ordinary, and so in her practice tells visual stories of everyday people – presenting their individuality and an insight into their lives.
